Connecting kids to nature.
We deliver programs all year round in natural forested areas in Winnipeg. Our programs are listed below and registration is always open.
Momenta’s Advisory Committee manages our Families for Families Foresthood Grants. Grants can be requested to subsidize the cost of Foresthood programming for families who find cost to be a barrier. Grant requests should be emailed to email@example.com.
We also deliver Foresthood programming to groups, please contact us to design a program.
