Winter Bird Count

Sunday, December 101 pm to 3 pm

Register at eventbrite

One chickadee, two varied thrushes, and a partridge in a pear tree? It’s almost winter, and that means that it’s time to count birds. Join local birder Cara Goggs to visit Maplewood Mudflats and learn how to scan the skies and the bushes for winter birds. This bird count has happened every year since 1900!

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.
