COMOX VALLEY

February 9, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm PST

Fun in the Forest
Our theme is “Fun in the Forest” – this will be a forest “hike” – easy but longer/more walking than many of our outings. We are going to have a few activities along the way and are going to learn about the “magical” properties of forests (essentially the services that forests provide for us all).
Location: Seal Bay Forest – meet at the Elmo/Mitchell Road Entrance (located out the back of the Huband area): E8 on the park map located at this link.  https://www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/sites/default/files/docs/Parks-Recreation/seal_bay_brochure_oct_10_map_only.pdf
Please Bring: 
– appropriate clothing/layers for the weather. It is often damp and cool in the forest this time of year, even if it is a nice sunny day.
– if there has been heavy rains the trails are often muddy so boots or good shoes that can handle a bit of mud is a good idea.
– snacks – this is a longer hike so you may want to pack a little drink/snack to assist any little legs
– please leave dogs at home and help us remind the kids that nature stays in nature
RSVP:
Please let Katrina and Hayley know if you are planning to attend – either by responding to this email or replying on the facebook event page.

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.
