Wood Duck Nest Box Check-In
If anyone is interested in checking out what may (or may not) have happened with our Wood Duck nest boxes we are heading out this Sunday to clean them and refill with new nesting materials (at Oliver Woods). I don’t know about you, but I am super curious to see if any of them were used – there were certainly merganser ducklings on the water last spring/ summer, so it is possible.  If it turns out that some were used, I think I will look into my contacts and try to get some wildlife cameras for the coming season.
If you do plan to attend please just reply to this email and let me know how many will be there. And remember to dress for muddy/ wet conditions! if you have muddybuddies or rain pants or even hipwaders, I am sure you will be grateful that you wore them!

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.
