Baxter Field Trip - October 12

A few tips for our upcoming field trip next week:

Here is a list of things for your students to bring with you:
-              Water bottle (Water at Baxter’s interpretive centre is potable and water bottles can be refilled at the sinks.)
-              Litterless lunch (We ask all groups to pack out any garbage they bring in with them. We DO NOT sell food onsite)
-          Rubber boots (Necessary if it is raining.)
-              Rain gear (Just in case!)
The RVCA and local Health Unit recommend the following things for visits to any natural area:   
-              Long light coloured pants and long-sleeved shirts in lightweight fabric for breathability
-              Closed-toed shoes
-              DEET based insect repellent
-              Sunscreen and hat
-              Checking yourself for ticks when you return home: Carefully inspect yourself for any ticks, starting at your ankles and moving up. Take special care around your knees, armpits and head.

I will be calling parent volunteers on Tuesday.
