Especially for kids!
Discover Canberra’s amazing nature on a guided walk.
The Conservation Council is hosting three walks as part of the Canberra and Region Heritage Festival. This year’s theme for the festival is ‘curiosity’. What better theme could we have to inspire us on these three great walks especially for children?
Register and come along to the Jerrabomberra Wetlands, Hall Cemetery or Kama Nature Reserve to explore Canberra’s cool plants and crazy creatures with local expert guides.
Kids, don’t forget to remind your adults – you’ll need a sunhat, drink bottle and some sturdy shoes for walking. You might also like to bring a magnifying glass or a camera to record what you see.
You will also receive a free hard copy of Canberra’s Amazing Nature written especially for kids! It’s got some great field guides and information on the places we are visiting.
Walk 1: Jerrabomberra Wetlands
Visit Canberra’s waterbird wonderland and see if you can spot frogs and turtles, and count how many different birds go wading in the water!
