Burke Mountain Naturalists’

March 26, 2017 @ 2:00 pm PDT

Our next Explorer Day will take place on Sunday March 26, from 2-4pm at Minnekhada. We are very lucky to have an excellent naturalist from Metro Vancouver Parks as our Nature Mentor. She will take us on a short loop walk and talk about forests and the changing seasons, and some fun log rolling to search for salamanders and bugs! She’ll bring magnifiers and dip nets as well. Please bring binoculars if you have them.
Please meet at the Quarry Road Parking lot and dress appropriately for the weather and walking. Boots are recommended as it can be quite wet this time of year!

RSVP by March 23rd.

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.
