Our next Explorer Day will take place on Sunday, October 15th at 8:30am. The club did this last fall as well and it’s a great day!
We will do fall migratory bird mist netting and banding at Iona (in Richmond) with WildResearch.
This is an amazing way to see birds up close and learn a lot about bird population monitoring, as well as bird identification!
I’ll send more details about the day soon, but wanted to get the date out to the club as soon as I could.
There is a charge of $1 per person just to cover some insurance costs for Wild Research (a non-profit). So please bring this with you.

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.
