April 8, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT

We have a great opportunity to learn more about birds and help with the nest box program at our Salmon Arm foreshore. Our resident biologist, Diane Wittner will be leading the group with some help from SABNES (Salmon Arm Bay Nature Enhancement Society).
There are some new nest boxes to be stained and put up. We are hoping to have students/families adopt-a-nest box and keep track of the activity throughout the summer. Please let me know if this is something you and your child would like to do.
Location: Brighouse Nature Centre, parking lot at the Foreshore near the wharf

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.
