About Surrey Nature Centre

The Surrey Nature Centre at Green Timbers helps you explore the natural and cultural heritage of Green Timbers. Learn about the birthplace of reforestation in BC and get to know the many people who together saved this treasure for future generations.

Kids of all ages come to learn at our nature centre, in the Guides and Scouts Explore Program, or in Nature Adventures Program for Daycamps and Daycares.

Teachers also join us, bringing students to our school programs and on preschool field trips, or attending workshops to cover their PLOs.

If you're coming for one of our events, visiting us for a children's day camp, or teaching people about the environment as a Nature Centre volunteer, you'll always discover a place to connect with nature - a place to play.


Free Birding Walk

Join a local naturalist Saturday, March 21 (9 - 11am) for a free, guided birding walk. Walk through grassy meadows, forests and the Green Timbers Arboretum in search for the birds that call this park home. This walk is for beginner to intermediate birders; no previous birding experience needed. Bring a pair of binoculars and a bird guide if you have them. Walk will go rain or shine.
