Monday, January 2 Christmas Bird Count with the White Rock Naturalists
Campbell Valley Regional Park.
We will meet Rebecca and Vanessa at the Nature House at 9am. We will walk the area around the ponds and farm buildings, and possibly the ravine trail. We will go inside the red barn to check out the barn owls via webcam! Park in the lot off of 8th Ave. Pack a lunch, drinks, and mug (hot water provided at the Nature House) and dress for the weather. If you have them, bring your bird ID cards or field guides. You can bring your binoculars or borrow.
The WR Nats are starting their count at 8am, and we will meet up with them for lunch. If you wish to continue birding after lunch for a full Christmas Bird Count experience you are welcome to join 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.
