Christmas Bird Count for Kids!

Join us for a day of citizen science on Sunday Dec 30. BV Naturalist Member Laurie McArthur will be our nature mentor while we learn about the art of birding, and support Smithers 38th annual bird count. We will be making bird feeders and hanging them in the park and go on a bird hunt. Bring you binoculars, nature journals if desired, and dress for the weather.

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
