About the Event
Our next Family Nature Day will coincide with World Environment Day! To celebrate, we have organised some very special activities for the afternoon that all raise awareness towards protecting our planet and how to live cleaner, greener and more sustainably. Some highlights include:
- Wildlife warrior, ornithologist and all-round eco legend Simon Cherriman will be at the centre to launch his new book 'Hollowed Out', where you can grab a copy and have it signed by the author himself!
- 'Containers for Change' drive - save up and bring in your recyclable cans and bottles to dispose in our bin. Ten cents from every container will gratefully go towards the WA Gould League, raising funds for our non-for-profit organisation and its educational programs. As an added incentive, donors go into a draw to win a special prize!
- Jake Bamford, of Dapper Cranium Studios, will be hosting a gameplay session of 'Bin-Off', his exciting new recycling card game that teaches kids how to properly sort rubbish.
There will also be some fun recycled projects and crafts to make, hands-on aquatic scooping, guided nature walks, interactive exhibits and our resident animals, the book/gift shop (with a new line of enviro cleaning products!) and of course yummy bakery treats and barista-made beverages from our coffee window Twitchers.
What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
Bookings are essential. Entry is $10 per person, $30 per family or FREE for Friends of the WA Gould League.
Please note a COVID event plan will be in place – physical distancing, sanitization measures, proof of vaccination, contact registers and increased indoor ventilation will be in place, with the majority of the event held outdoors in open space.
