March 16, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT

Geology Rocks!

We will be welcoming geologist and NatureKids co-leader Carly Ristow as our nature mentor this month. Carly is a graduate from the geology and sustainability program at Dalhousie University. She has a passion for the natural world and has spent time working in a gold exploration camp in Western Australia and in oil and gas exploration in Trinidad and Tobago. Carly’s interests lie in outdoor education and she is currently pursuing this as a teaching assistant at the Nelson Waldorf school.

During this month’s event we will be introduced to the geologic history of the Kootenays. We will get to explore samples of different rock types and create dioramas of the moutainous region that we call home. Please come dressed for the weather and ready to learn!

Location: Lakeside Park

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.
