Wild Bird Rehabilitation Centre (Virtual Visit)

June 12 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for a live tour of Le Nichoir bird sanctuary and a “meet and greet” with some of their (temporary) residents. Le Nichoir provides proper care and treatment for injured or orphaned wild birds and releases them back into their natural habitat. It is the largest songbird centre in Canada and annually sees 2,500+ birds (and over 100+ species!). We’ll visit the different aviaries (aquatic, woodpecker and songbird) and get all the answers to all your bird related questions ;).

Thank you to our friends at Plant a Seed and See What Grows Foundation for connecting us.

Le Nichoir’s mission is to conserve wild birds as part of our natural heritage for future generations. Le Nichoir delivers its mission through the professional and compassionate care of injured and orphaned wild birds and through public environmental education. Learn more here: https://lenichoir.org

Mark your calendars! And stay tuned for registration details.

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.
