Delta HL

Cancelled due to low attendance. Sorry!

Nature Up Close
Time: 10-noon
Location: Ladner Harbour Park, 4905 McNeely’s Way, Ladner

We’ll meet at the park where we’ll learn how to use loupes to get a close up view of nature. Then we’ll go for a walk on the trails and find things to look at. Back at the park, we’ll get creative with the loupes and some of our favorite natural objects and create poetry and pictures based on what we see. If you have a 5X or 10X loupe, please bring it along. Other magnifiers are welcome too. And if you have a nature journal or sketchbook, you can bring that to work in. Otherwise drawing materials and loupes will be provided.

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.
