Scout Island’s Family Explorers and Young Naturalists’ Club invites the public to join them the Sunday before Earth Day at Scout Island Nature Centre.
Sunday, April 21 dig into the earth to enhance habitat for wildlife by planting a tree at Scout Island between 10 a.m. and noon.
This annual event is always popular so come early to be sure you get a chance to plant, says Jenny Noble. Please wear sensible shoes and gardening gloves.
At noon come to the Nature House and meet special guest Beth Bedard, professor of archaeology at Thompson Rivers University, who will share her lifetime of adventures from around the world.
Make an archaeology sandwich with Young Naturalist Club leader Mary Forbes to see how archaeologists learn about people from the past by studying what they have left behind in the ground.
Practice making stone tools using an ancient skill called “flint knapping” and get your hands dirty excavating for artifacts in our special junior archaeologist day camp.
