On the afternoon of Saturday, April 15th, children, families and community members are invited to the Rutland Boys and Girls Club to learn about wolves with some first-hand experience. Meet Gary Allan and Tundra and see what makes wolves so special and valuable to our ecosystems.
The event is a fun, family-friendly, education event that will also include games, activities and displays from other community groups related to nature, ecology and conservation.
Where: Rutland Boys and Girls Club (355 Hartman Rd)
When: Sunday, April 15th 1-4pm
What to Bring: Friends! Classmates! Grandparents!
In addition, Gary has agreed to let NatureKids members have an exclusive meet-and-greet with Tundra the wolf right after his talk, before everyone else gets to meet her!
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.
