Nanaimo

November 5, 2017 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 am PST

Our November explorer day will be a mushroom hunt with mycologist Terry Taylor. Let’s enjoy the fascinating world of Fungi in our own neighbourhood. We will be meeting on Sunday November 05 from 1:00 – 3:00pmat the Lost Lake Trail in Linley Valley Park.

Last year on our mushroom walk we counted over 30 different species, from Coral, to Bracket to Parasol mushrooms! This year we are hoping to make our own little ‘field guide’ of what we found and where we found it on the trail. We would love to include photos made by budding photographers or, even better, sketches! So bring your sketchbooks and pencils 🙂

Don’t forget to dress for the weather, and bring a warm drink to keep the chill away.

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.
