July 23, 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm PDT

Please join us in a Moon Walk at Coles Bay Regional Park.

When the moon is new and the tide is low, down to Coles Bay we’ll go!
Join a CRD Regional Parks naturalist to look for marine creatures like crabs, sea stars, and the elusive moon snail.
This program includes wading in the water so be prepared to get your feet and clothes wet (wear shorts and sandals or beach shoes).

Meet at the kiosk in the parking lot of Inverness Road.

Meet at 9:30 (Public program starts at 10)
There may be a chance that the Bateman Centre will do some nature sketching with us prior to the public program starting as part of the Explorer Day- I will let you know and adjust our timing as needed if this is the case.

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.
