Nature Play Project @ Birdsland Environmental Education Centre


Sunday, January 5, 2020 - 9:30am to 12:00pm


Aimed at families with young children, this Southern Dandenong’s Landcare Group project offers nature-based activities and play with a strong focus on caring for our environment through tending Birdland’s very own community vegetable patch and bush garden.

 Parents and children will take part in:

  • Developing and caring for the community bush garden and vegetable patch, sharing seeds and plants, sowing crops and enjoying the bounty that this brings.
  • Nature walks within the Birdsland Reserve setting
  • Nature-based art experiences in and around the off-grid education centre, which also has a fully functioning kitchen for cooking activities
  • Socializing with other families in the community, sharing ideas and everyday sustainable practices around the home
  • Guest speakers and visitors from organizations and community members in the hills with a focus on sustainable living and protecting our natural environment.

The project runs on the first Sunday of the month (9.30 am-12 pm) and the third Monday of the month (1 pm-3 pm)
