About this Event

The Ghost Watershed Alliance Society (GWAS) would like to invite you and your child(ren) to a fun Sunday afternoon along the Ghost River.

Theme: Awesome Autumn!

Looking through the lens of seasonal change, we will investigate life along the Ghost River before winter snow and freezing temperatures arrive. Through a pond study, scavenger hunt, and group storytelling, we will offer the following glimpses into nature:

Bustling bugs – bring your eye up close and see aquatic invertebrates!

Wetland wonders – investigate how water behaves in a wetland!

Change the channel – search for evidence of a moving riverbed!

Flood forensics – be a detective and look for clues of past flooding!

Riparian ramble – take a nature walk where the water meets the land!

*Both returning and first-time participants will experience something new.

When:

2:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Sunday, October 4, 2020 (Please register by Friday, October 2, 5pm)

2:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Sunday, October 18, 2020 (Please register by Friday, October 16, 5pm)

Note: You are welcome to attend either or both events
