Bat Count!

Join us for our second bat count of the season at Campbell Valley Regional Park. No previous experience necessary! We will be learning about bats, playing some games, and then hunkering down to count the bats as they emerge from their roost site. It’s a late night, but an exciting opportunity to contribute to an important Citizen Science project! Bat counts are usually done between June 1-21 or July 11 to August 5 throughout the province. The data can be submitted to the bat citizen science coordinator who will summarize and submit to the BC Community Bat Program.

You can sign up here.

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.
