Little Qualicum Falls hike. I am pleased to have a Mentor leading us. Lois Lecavalier. Here is her Bio
“Mycology is my hobby and has been for 5 years now since I moved to Vancouver Island. I enjoy foraging for mushrooms and learning new species. There are thousands of fungi on Vancouver Island and more than 100 are edible. There are also many medicinals and mushrooms used as dyes. Hunting for mushrooms is an inexpensive, healthy and useful hobby to get into and I look forward to introducing the children to it.  My own kids forage with me and they often find things I did not see. “

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.
