NatureKids Kelowna: Extreme Environments – Alkaline Wetlands

July 13, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - July 14, 2016 @ 8:00 am PDT

We will be learning all about how animals can survive extreme environments. There are many places around the world that you wouldn’t think could support life, but somehow do. Undersea vents that have temperatures WAY over boiling, frozen ice in the arctic, and many more! Our local example of an extreme environment is Kathleen Lake, which is an alkaline lake. This means it has a very high concentration of mineral salts dissolved in the water, making it toxic to some species. Yet other species thrive there!
Please feel free to bring along friends, just print off a guest pass from the front page of our website and bring it to the event!
As always, please reply to Kate’s email about this event with a YES or NO for attendance.  This is in no way binding, but Kate needs to know the approximate number of attendees beforehand.

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.
