Open House is our largest event of the year, and you’re invited! It’s a fun, nature-filled family event we’re co-hosting with Cheakamus Centre – the environmental education centre most of our volunteer work supports. Come immerse yourself in experiential outdoor learning at this world-class institute. Nestled in the breathtaking Paradise Valley on the mighty Cheakamus river near Squamish, Cheakamus Centre is where nature is always in session.
Get a first-hand glimpse into a day in the life of an Outdoor School Program student – stewarding salmon at the hatchery, studying the forest floor, and enjoying a paddle on the canoe pond. Make sure to check out our famous NVOSAS Silent Auction, guided forest walk, face-painting booth, and much more at Open House!
All proceeds from these activities support environmental education programs including our Outdoor School for Kids Bursary fund.
