Kokanee Creek Park Visitors Centre near Nelson is offering a solution to parents struggling to pry their teens out of the digital world.
Park Naturalist Joanne Siderius and three other instructors will offer three-hour afternoon classes every week.
She says its possible due to grants received from the Columbia Basin Trust and the Nelson and District Credit Union.
Those five scientific investigations include nature journaling, animal behavior and census, Kokanee Creek inhabitants and water quality, aboriginal botany and aboriginal tracking.
Siderius adds the best part is the classes are free.
