NORTH OKANAGAN

September 27, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT

Salmon Run

We will meet at Creekside Park (at the parking lot) to observe the Kokanee Salmon run, learn about their life cycle and play socially distanced games. I will send out an email with our new safety guidelines and informed consent agreement. With hand sanitizer, our new forms and positive language to encourage children to remain socially distanced, we are ready for more outdoor learning 🙂 Masks are invited/optional but not required. We are asking for a minimum of 4 children to run this event (I doubt we will need a maximum based on the size of our club).

I believe now, more than ever, outdoor learning is key. NatureKids is a great way to meet with other families in our community in a safe way to connect with one another, other families and the outdoors.

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.
