Visit to Iona Island Bird Observatory

We’re headed to the Iona Island Bird Observatory in Richmond, where “Wild Research” monitors populations of wintering and migratory birds in an ecologically important park. We will visit the Bird Banding Station and learn about the important conservation work being done there. We’ll also observe staff and volunteers perform bird banding as part of the Spring Migration Monitoring program. This Explorer Day will cost $5.00 per family.

Meeting time in Richmond is 8:30AM. More details coming soon.

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.
