August 20, 2017 @ 6:00 am - 8:00 am PDT

When: Sunday, August 20th 1-3pm
Where: Lambly Lake, West Kelowna
What to Bring: Camera, sunscreen, hat, water, snack
We will drive to Lambly lake to see the mass metamorphosis of Western Toads. Be prepared to see thousands of tiny toadlets, and giant tadpoles.

The road there takes about 45 minutes from the bridge, and is a slightly washboarded gravel road. Take it slow and give yourself time to travel!

The lessons in this activity include the process of metamorphosis, characteristics of amphibians, and the predator-prey population cycle.

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.
