About the Event
Liven up your school holidays with a fascinating visit from Phil 'The Bug Man' Moore and his minibeast entourage!
Phil is pleased to return for a special school holiday program, bringing a variety of stick insects, spiny leaf insects, monarch caterpillars, mealworms, katydids, tadpoles and frogs, spiders, slugs and snails as well as a variety of backyard bugs (dependent upon availability). He will give a 1-hour informative presentation and introduce each species, with plenty of hands-on interaction. Then we're going on a bug hunt; we're not scared! Safely capture a variety of local insects and study them under a microscope before returning them to their natural habitat.
For those interested in keeping insects as pets, Phil will also have some insect/tadpole kits for sale on the day.
Please note this is not a drop-off program, and a responsible carer or adult must be present at all times. Adults are welcome to join the workshop, picnic on the grounds, or make full use of the barista coffee window and free wifi.
