Holiday Program- Winter Wildlings
July 3 @ 10:00 am - July 9 @ 1:00 pm
You are invited to explore Darebin Parklands to deepen your nature connection and natural curiosity with us these school holidays.
Do you have a wild child on your hands?
Would you love to see your kids more connected to nature?
Meet and play with other kids and nature connection mentors this winter in the magical bushland of the Darebin Parklands..
Learn and play some wilderness awareness and nature games, discover more about the plants, birds and creatures that share the city with us. We may have a go trying to light a fire by friction and wild crafting with bush materials.
Join with fun nature connection mentors; together we will explore, wander along the creek, 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 3rd and 9th of July check the booking link here: www.trybooking.com/BDIDC 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.
