NatureKids Explorer Day Report – Fun in the Forest – Feb. 9, 2020

Hello NatureKids families! 

What a refreshing afternoon in the Seal Bay Park forest. We learned how forests can be magical by providing us with many different things such as homes, food, jobs, products, clean water, and oxygen. Not only do forests fight climate change (which makes them pretty cool) but they help us to refresh and reset, allowing for us to feel re-energized for the day or week ahead! Some of our fun forest activities included a colour palette hunt to see how forests can be a source of inspiration for colours, and hiding amongst the flora in a game of Camouflage to see how animals can use the forest for protection.

Here are a few photos from our Explorer Day, and you can see more on our Comox Valley NatureKids Facebook page.
