Each year Meadowlark Nature Festival takes pride in presenting more than 40 tours led by talented and knowledgeable tour leaders. For a small honorarium our tour leaders pour their hearts and souls into their presentations out of sheer love, passion and dedication to conservation and our natural environment. Along with tour leader fees, there are many other programming related expenses such as venue rentals, liability insurance, permits, transportation expenses and signage costs.

Our Adopt-A-Tour program helps offset a portion of the costs of our tours and provide a chance for our dedicated Meadowlarkers to support your favourites. In addition to the wonderful glow of giving to a great cause, here’s a list of some other benefits you receive when you join our Adopt-A-Tour program:

  • Two (2) complimentary tickets to the tour you adopt.
  • Name recognition on the Meadowlark website on the tour page of the tour you adopt.
  • Tax receipt for your donation (Individual donors only – less value of tickets). Tax receipts will be mailed after the Festival.

How does it work? Simply complete the order form to the right, choosing the tour you wish to adopt. If the tour is not on the list, it means it has already been adopted. There are many wonderful tours to choose from so we hope you can find one you love!! Once your order form has been processed you will receive an email with your complimentary tickets to bring with you to the tour of your choice.

Thank you so much for your support! If you have any questions, please email or call 250-492-5275. See you at the Festival!
