COMOX VALLEY

November 4, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm PST

Rosewall Creek Provincial Park Exploration
We’ll go on a hike in the forest and then have some creek based activities, look for evidence of spawning chum salmon, and we’ll also check out the recent work BC Parks has been doing to restore streambanks and protect from erosion.
I hope many of you can make it. There are some picnic tables, or we might find another spot along the trail for a little snack – so pack a little something and maybe a thermos of hot chocolate and we can enjoy a “year end” snack together as well, as this is the last Explorer Day scheduled for 2019.
Location:  The park is about 30mins south of Courtenay and can be accessed by the Cook Creek interchange off Hwy #19 or from Hwy #19a.
Guests are welcome to try out an Explorer Day, so feel free to bring along family or friends.

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.
