COMOX VALLEY

October 27, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT

Focus on Fungus!

We are lucky to have Alison Maingon from Comox Valley Nature joining us as our guest leader, helping us to find and learn about various forest fungi located in the park. It might be fun to bring a magnifying glass on this trip as mushrooms can look pretty cool close up! Mushroom photos are fun too if you have a camera or phone you want to use for pictures.
Please come prepared for the weather as we tend to go out rain or shine. If the weather is looking “iffy” I will send out an email confirming whether or not we are going out by 11am. Generally speaking, we only call it off if there is a heavy wind making it potentially unsafe in the forest.
Location and directions: Nymph Falls Nature Park. Take Piercy Road from Condensory Road heading to Inland Island Highway 19. Turn Left on Forbidden Plateau Road. The main parking lot is on the left hand side.

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.
