bug in the bush

Program dates 2020 to be announced - stay tuned for more great programs coming up next year!


Explore the bush for critters in Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park.

Age: This session is suitable for children aged 4 - 8 years old.

What lives in the bush? Young explorers are invited to hunt for invertebrates and spiders in Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park. Work in a team to build a bug hideaway and create your own bush critter to take home.

This community program is in partnership with the Parks and Wildlife Service's Nearer to Nature series. During the school holidays they provide fun, hands-on activities that bring kids of all ages up close and personal with our wonderful plants and animals in some very special places. 

Nearer to Nature’s overall aim is to increase the community’s environmental awareness, knowledge and skills, including the related heritage of Indigenous and European cultures. The best way to do that is by getting out into nature and having fun!

Check out the Nearer to Nature website for more information.
