Nearer to Nature's school holiday programs at the Canning River Eco Education Centre provide unique, enjoyable activities that help children discover intriguing natural areas.
Ducks, herons, spoonbills and swamphens are all incredible waterbirds. Their beaks, legs and even feet can tell us a lot about how they live. Discover how their features help them survive as you head out on a waterbird scavenger hunt along the river.
We are holding an Open Day and inviting everyone to come and see what we have to offer. All our toys will be on display and the little ones can give them a test try. We will have a face painter and some finger food for the kids. We will be offering an extra 3 months membership to anyone who signs up on the day.
In Western Australia invertebrates such as insects and spiders make up more than 80% of all our animals. Without them, we would struggle to survive.
Come and meet some friendly invertebrates such as giant stick insects, weevils, spiders such as Tammy the tarantula, and Carrol the giant burrowing Cockroach.
Learn how each creature plays a valuable role in the environment; even cockroaches!
Check out our displays of some of the world’s most impressive and large insects from all over the world including moths, beetles and butterflies!
