SALMON ARM

April 14, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT

Adopt-a Nest Box Program
Details: Our mentor, Di Wittner, will explain details about Nest boxes, their need and what to look for throughout the summer. Each family can decide how many boxes they would like to monitor throughout the summer. Ideally if you can visit your boxes once every 2-3 weeks to record what is happening. If you would just like to come and learn about the program and not monitor boxes that is great too!
What to bring: Dress for weather, might need rubber boots to get to some boxes. Snacks, water, binoculars if you have them! We might be able to arrange with the Nature center to borrow them each time you come in the summer if you do not own any
Place: Meet at the parking lot at the warf beside Brighouse Nature Centre
Please tell your friends as we could really use more volunteers this summer and it is a fun thing to do!!

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.
