Fall Walk at Deer Lake

On Sunday October 27th at 2 pm, the Vancouver Club will meet for a walk around Deer Lake. Please bring your binoculars and bird field guides (we’ll bring some too) and we’ll have a look at the ducks that are on the water. Also in honour of fall, we’ll look for all things nature-related that are red. We may see some red-breasted or common mergansers (they have red bills), and there might be some pretty maple trees as well.

We’ll meet at the parking lot off of Sperling Ave where there is the small beach and boat rental location. It is about a 3 km walk around the lake and should take us 1 – 1.5 hours. Register here.

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.
