Nature Journals and Spring Walk
Our nature mentor this month will be NatureKids co-leader Jen von Gradulewski.  We will start the day by creating simple nature journals to take on our “Discovering Spring” walk. We can look at some gardens and/or go on a small hike up to “Little Rock” where along the way we can start looking for signs of spring.

If the weather and snow aren’t cooperating, we can stay close to warmth and plant some Wild or Lemon Bergamont (a bee-loving perrenial, also called Bee Balm).


Location: Heddlestone Village
Bring: rain gear, appropriate footwear, water, small snack. Be preapred for SPRING weather.

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.
