We are The Young Naturalist (Australia)- connecting children with Nature; an educational organisation that aims to enrich children’s lives by nurturing inquiring minds and connecting them with Nature through interactive education experiences, scientific investigation and participation in community Citizen Science projects.

We will be guiding the children on their journey of discovery, stimulating their curiosity, nurturing a ‘sense of wonder’ and creating tangible connections with our Natural World which we hope will create a lifelong desire to protect and conserve Nature.

The Founders and Directors of The Young Naturalist and The Young Naturalist Australia Pty Ltd are Dr Fiona Benyon (mycologist) and Dr Aniuzka Kazandjian (botanist). If you are interested in the program please visit our website at and contact us via email at
