Eastern Fraser Valley Club

October 1, 2017 @ 3:00 am - 5:00 am PDT

We’re pleased to invite you to our upcoming October Explorer Day, Rock and Fossil Hunt, with Drew Brayshaw on October 12017 from 10-noon at Slesse Creek. The Chilliwack River Valley has an astonishing geological history and we will be looking at this great story through the rocks at Slesse Creek. We will see evidence of long ago volcanoes, the earth being squeezed into curvy ribbons of sedimentary rock, and look for ancient marine fossils proving that our mountain valley was once an ancient sea bed.

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.
