Curious Experiences

A day of exploring in nature with scientists. We'll be going bush to learn how nature works and how we can help it heal. Bring your questions, your curiosity, and perhaps also some gumboots because you never know what's going to happen with mad scientists around. During these adventures we'll learn about birds, fungi, creating safe spaces for native animals, native plants and animals, humans effect on the environment and much more.
