Explorer Day – Bird Photography for Kids and Beaver Lake Bird Checklist + NatureKids AGMMay 13th, 10am to Noon
Stanley Park Pavillion
610 Pipeline Rd
A professional photographer will be giving tips to kids and adults on how to take effective bird photos. We’ll focus on the larger birds we can find at Beaver Lake. There will also be a checklist/scavenger hunt of species to look for. Our friend, Christine Rock, who has taught us about birds already at the Iona bird banding station will also be attending to help us identify and learn about the birds we find.
The NatureKids BC AGM will also be held at the same location that morning starting at 9am. For families with children who will be content with some indoor activities and cupcakes prior to the Explorer Day we’d love for you to attend and help make quorum for the AGM.
Please RSVP via the sent email. Thanks!
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.
