School holiday family fun activities
The Coromandel Community Centre is once again organising fun packed activities for kids to have fun but at the same time learn something new this school holidays.
The 'Become a Nature Explorer' event well help kids learn about the native plants and animals that live in the local creek through educational and artistic activities.
Kids will love getting messy planting native seedlings and learning how rain gardens work, while the environmentally friendly paper art workshop will bring out their creative side.
Did you know that there are about 4000 frog species worldwide, and Australia has 208 of them? Many of these are endemic, meaning they are found nowhere else in the world. At this event, some of them will be on display - everyone will have the opportunity learn more and ask questions about these remarkable animals.
Plus there are other nature play activities for everyone to enjoy.
Held on Wednesday 8 July, 10am to 12 noon, this is a free event for all the family to enjoy.
Participants are advised to dress appropriately for the weather and if they have them, bring gardening gloves.
Be prepared to get messy with plenty of outdoor activities - but to have lots of fun while learning about the local flora and fauna!
