Tawny and the Bushfire programView image slideshow

Learning about fire in the bush

Every summer our urban bushland and the animals that live there are threatened by fires. This interactive story about a real bushfire in Kings Park is told through the eyes of Tawny Frogmouth.

Students learn about the effects of fire on our unique banksia woodland ecosystem with a focus on how the plants and animals cope after fire.

The program includes a visit from a Kings Park firefighter. 

'The highlight was seeing the children so engaged with nature.' - Kindergarten Teacher
