Christmas Bird Count for Kids!
The plan is to meet at the tennis courts at the end of Marina Way..  This is a location that is more likely to be sheltered from winter conditions (for the comfort of birds and those who watch them!)
We will walk along the lake front and identify all the bird species we see along the way.  Christmas bird counts are a long standing tradition in Canada and around the world!  The information gathered helps to understand and conserve wildlife.

Please remember to dress in warm layers, bring a warm drink, and also bring binoculars if you have them.  I will bring extra binoculars and clip boards.

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.
