River Basin Days | Kids Out and About Vancouver

River Basin Days

In this month’s River Basin Day, learn how to meet your nature neighbours! You may know your human neighbours, but do you know which birds live in your neighbourhood? Which bugs? Do you know the names of the plants growing on the sidewalk? Do you want to? If you do, then this is the workshop for you!

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.


First, you’ll join an FRDC educator on Zoom for 1 hour to learn how to set up and conduct a biological survey of your neighbourhood. A survey creates a list of all the species that live in an area. Second, you’ll go out on your own to conduct the survey. Third, you’ll share your findings with the other workshop participants through a invite-only video message board.

A survey can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be, so all ages and levels of experience are welcome. You don’t need any prior knowledge; this workshop will give you all the tools you need to conduct a successful survey!

This event is free with paid admission to the Centre. Pay online when you register, and receive your admission tickets by email. Use these anytime to visit the Centre!
