COWICHAN VALLEY HL

April 30, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am PDT

Wildflower Walk in the Garry Oak Preserve

Our April outing will be at the Garry Oak Preserve in Duncan. We will be joining Margaret Corsan for a wildflower walk.
Location: Meet at the end of York Rd (off of Trillium Terrace, off of Lakes Rd). Parking is a little tricky, there isn’t a lot of space.
Come dressed for the weather. Strollers are not recommended. Trails are kept very narrow to avoid damaging any of this sensitive ecosystem. Bring a camera to take pictures of the wild flowers and maybe binoculars in case we see a Blue Bird
This is a permit only park that isn’t open to the public. Don’t miss out on this rare chance to see this special place. Check it out online at  http://www.natureconservancy.ca/en/where-we-work/british-columbia/featured-projects/cgop/

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.
