The AWARE Kids Nature Club has been educating local and visiting youth about all things environmental since 2007.
These free sessions are focused on encouraging learning through fun interactive activities and are open to all, but are mainly intended for kids aged 5-11. All kids must be accompanied by a parent.
Past topics include – what’s the buzz about bees? Building solar powered cars, painting birdhouses and learning about local bird song, turning rubbish into art, being bear smart and creepy crawlies…
