Birding Bonanza at Uplands Park/Cattle Point

The weather is changing again, buds are sprouting and birds are chirping! Come learn all about birds as we meet our local bird expert Geoffrey who is a young, avid birder and a member of the Victoria Natural History Society.   He will take us on a walk around Cattle Point/Uplands Park to hear and identify some of our local birds.  Please RSVP here.

WHEN: Saturday, March 14th, 2020,  1pm – 3pm,

WHERE: 2900 Beach Drive, Cattle Point, Victoria.  Meet by the signage in the Parking Lot.

HOW TO GET THERE: If coming from the North on Highway 17, Take a left on Hillside Avenue and head east until Hillside Ave. turns into Lansdowne Road. Continue on Lansdowne Rd. through the Uplands neighbourhood until you reach Beach Drive. Take a right on Beach Drive and head south until you get to a parking lot along the water.   Cattle Point is north of Willows Beach.

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.
