Birds and Butterflies in the Bush, Kings Park Education program

Discover the beautiful birds and butterflies that call the bush home.

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

Become a citizen scientist and go on an animal adventure! Find out how to help birds and butterflies and make a mobile 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.
