EXPLORE STILL CREEK
Recent restoration efforts have improved the health of Still Creek in East Vancouver, resulting in the return of chum salmon since 2012. On our next Explorer Day, we’ll join Dave Scott for a tour of this urban creek and discover some of the many plants and animals that have made this area their home. If we’re lucky we may even see some salmon!
We’ll also learn about the restoration process of this environment, and what we can do to promote the health of this and other wild and natural areas in Vancouver.
Our Nature Mentor, Dave, is an active member of Still Creek Streamkeepers, and is the Lower Fraser Salmon Program Coordinator for Raincoast Conservation Foundation.
Who: This Explorer Day may be more suited to older children, but all ages are welcome. Max. # of participants (children): 12.
What to bring: Dress for the weather and wear shoes that you don’t mind getting a little dirty or wet
Please note that this event takes place on a long weekend.
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.
