Mushroom walk and Nature Sketching
Our upcoming Explorer day will be a Mushroom walk with mycologist Terry Taylor. This has become something of an annual event – I hope you can join us! We will combine the walk with some nature sketching with biologist Trudy Chatwin. If you still have your sketch book from last year, please bring it with you. If your child/children haven’t got a sketch book let me know in the RSVP form that will be sent in the next day or two.
This year we will do our walk at Morrell Nature Sanctuary. Let’s meet at 1:30 pm. Dress for the weather, and bring your sketchpad and pencils!

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.
