Fossil Hunt in Seal Bay
We’ll comb the beach at Seal Bay looking for volcanic rocks and fossil-bearing cobbles carried to this area by a massive glacier that once covered the entire island. Kids can look for simple visual cues amongst the beach rocks to find evidence for ancient worlds and ancient life. We are fortunate to be joined on this adventure by Randal Mindell – a local geologist, who will be our “Nature Mentor” for the afternoon.
Location: meet at 1:30 at the Seabank Road Entrance of Seal Bay Park (this is not the main parking lot – take Waveland Rd to Seabank Rd).

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.
