SA coastal events coming up! Nature Festival and Robe Holiday Program

South Australia’s Nature Festival is back for a second time, and this year NGT is taking part. The festival is 10 days of events, encounters, and experiences to celebrate our love of nature in South Australia, and there are events throughout the state. There are all sorts of activities – there’s really something for everyone! You can find a full list of events here.

Our event will take place during the first week of school holidays on Tuesday, 28 September at our Hutt Bay reserve, where we will explore the wetland and learn about aquatic macro-invertebrates (water bugs), frogs, and other creatures. This event is free and open to all ages (we will tailor the activity to audience on the day, but we know both adults and children will enjoy this activity). Bookings can be via the website.

Also in the school holidays, I will be running a number of sessions (water bugs, beach combing, and sustainable fishing) in the Robe Holiday Program. These events are also open to all ages. Check the website for session times and bookings.

Hope to see you out there!
