Christmas Bird Count for Kids!

Join us for a day of citizen science on Sunday Dec 30 @ 9am. We will walk from Brydon Lagoon towards Hi-Knoll Park identifying and counting birds as part of a Canada wide study. All our data will be submitted to Bird Studies Canada. Your family will get a free science lesson in how to identify local bird species, collect scientific data and learn to use binoculars. A special thanks to Gareth Pugh for his help with this event.

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.
