Event description

Description

Get the kids into nature at the Garden these Summer Holidays and prepare to help save the bugs from pollution and protect their homes!


Daily activities include:

- Giant Water Bugs Garden Show:
Enjoy a hilarious adventure of the lives of the water bugs and learn about saving water and keeping our waterways clean through a colourful and entertaining live performance by the Theatre in a Wheelbarrow team from the Wollongong Botanic Garden Discovery Centre.

You'll meet the tolerant water bugs, Mr Leech, Skate and Diver Dan. You may even see the more sensitive Mud Eyes, Whirly and Yabby. Also be prepared to meet Maddy Pollutealot and his insensitive family of human beings. Enjoy the adventure but be prepared to take a long hard look at how we humans treat the stormwater system - perhaps we are part of the problem? We can certainly be part of the solution.

- Super Heroes of the Garden Treasure Hunt:
After the Water Bugs Show take a walk on the land to see the super bugs. Not all super heroes wear capes! Some sting, others can transform themselves, and others can even disappear. If you look closely at nature you will see some amazing tiny super heroes.

- Critter Crafts:
Use your own super powers to make some crazy critter crafts. Build an explorer’s magnifying glass and create a mini beast habitat. Then grow your own summer plant from the Botanic Garden.
