Holiday Program- Autumn Kids Nature Connection for Nature Play Week!
April 16 @ 10:00 am - April 18 @ 1:00 pm
It’s Nature Play Week!!
You are invited to explore Darebin Parklands to deepen your nature connection and natural curiosity with us these school holidays.
Join with fun nature connection mentors; together we will explore, wander along the creek, climb the bluestone, taste some bush foods, listen for the language of birds, practice the art of camouflage, sneak to get a closer look at animals, follow tracks, to discover more about the plants, birds and creatures that share the city with us.
Our family friendly nature connection sessions are aimed at 4-11 year olds. Parent participation is optional. While younger siblings may attend at no cost, they will need to be supervised by their parents/guardians. Kids need to bring a backpack with water, snacks, raincoat and a picnic lunch for the end.
These school holidays we are running sessions on the 16th and 18th of April check the booking link here: www.trybooking.com/BBUVS for current availability 🙂 Bookings essential.
Through our nature clubs, workshops and family camps we provide opportunities for people to connect to each other, the natural world and a like-minded community. Children are nurtured to develop their enquiring minds and deepen their wonder and respect for the natural world.
