Leaf Art and Nature Walk

It’s time for another explorer day this Sunday, October 28th. We’ll be meeting up at the Tranquille River trail (aka Pine Park) for a nature walk and art time at the park. We’ll collect colourful leaves along the way and then everyone can create beautiful images with them at the park at the end of the trail. This trail is smooth gravel and is suitable for most sturdy strollers, if you’d like to bring littler ones along too. The trail is about 4km round trip and we’ll stop at the middle to create the art. We’ll have paper and glue to make your creations.

We’ll meet at 1:30pm at the parking lot and start hiking shortly afterwards.  Here’s directions from city centre. Turn right at the gravel road at the end of the navigation and drive along until you get to the lot.

Please RSVP here so we can bring enough supplies. We’ll have some thermoses of kid-friendly herbal tea along, so feel free to bring a mug!

Come on out and learn about different leaf species and create some beautiful fall art for your house. Our next explorer day will be November 18th.

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.
