It’s Not a Dump!

Where does all our garbage and recycling go after it leaves the green and blue bins in your backyard? Why does Hartland Landfill have trained falconers on site? How can we turn garbage into electricity? Come find out all this and more in hands-on activities in the Learning Centre and on a guided tour of the landfill and recycling centre.

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.
