Calling all junior scientists, explorers, adventurers and nature lovers! Join Eurobodalla Shire Council for some free school holiday fun next week at the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens.
Birds, Bees and Seeds was such a winner with kids and their parents in the last school holidays that Council’s environment crew and the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens have teamed up to run it again for the Easter break.
Kids will learn about different birds and their nests while they make their own bird nest to take home and place in a tree to keep an eye on the birdlife in their own gardens. They’ll also get arty with clay and make ‘fossils’ from leaf prints while hearing about local plants and the reasons they all look different.
This time around, kids will also be able to learn about native bees. Like the birds nest, they can make their own ‘bee hotel’ to take home and attract these little critters to their home gardens.
Kids are amazing little learners – and teachers too! Some of the questions the children ask on the day inspire our environment staff to go on a research journey to help find them the answers.
Birds, Bees and Seeds will be held on Tuesday 11 April from 10am–12pm at the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens.
The activities are free and kids aged three to 10, accompanied by their parent or carer, are invited to come and help make a bit of mess, ask loads of questions and enjoy being out and about in our beautiful Botanic Gardens.
Bring some morning tea along, or stay around for lunch at the Gardens’ café.
