Come out and become a Junior Ranger on Friday, November 24 @ 10:00 a.m. at the Blacktail Picnic Shelter in Aldergrove Regional Park! The Junior Ranger program is intended to introduce kids to the concept of human-wildlife conflict and encourage them to take an active role in reducing human-wildlife conflict at home by helping their families identify backyard wildlife attractants. Jenna Belhumeur from WildSAFE BC will teach us about:
• Basic needs (habitat requirements) of local wildlife species
• The root causes of human wildlife conflict
• How human wildlife conflict impacts both people and animals
• What we can do at home to prevent human wildlife conflict
• How to stay safe in wildlife country
Duration is approximately 60 minutes

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.
