A free family-friendly event to learn about the environment
EnviroFEST is Whiteman Park's flagship environmental event that aims to increase the public's awareness and understanding of the importance of trees, the environment and conservation in the home and wider community.
On Sunday 10th April 2016 from 11am - 4pm, visitors to this family-friendly event will be able to browse through the range of displays, participate in workshops, listen in on short talks and take home an array of eco-friendly products and information to help them become more 'green' and sustainable.

Could you live plastic free? This is one of the workshop topics that will feature at EnviroFEST 2016. Chris Ferreira will talk about the importance of trees while other topics include retrofitting your home for energy efficiency, how to reduce (and sort!) your household waste.
The event features native fauna displays, renewable energy, Men of the Trees' native seedlings for sale and plenty of information for home gardeners. Visitors will also have the opportunity to connect with local conservation groups - both of environment and species-specific fauna conservation.
The kids won't miss out either, with lots of discoveries to be made! There will be eco-craft activities, free face painting, fairy fun, native animals to meet and more.
Located in the Village at Whiteman Park, and surrounded by natural bushland, EnviroFEST 2016 is a truly family-friendly event. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free food options will be available and there will be live music throughout the day.
