Monday 23rd April

Plant Stars!

Plants are amazing! As we head out in the valley, we’ll discover just why we cannot live without them. After lunch we will be making them the star of the show again as we try some clever artistry using paint, clay and stop motion animation.


Tuesday 24th April

Fungi – Friends and Foes

Find out about all things fungi with a fascinating look at these weird and wonderful, eukaryotic organisms. We’ll explore the valley looking for them in all shapes and colours. Using the valley tour as our inspiration we will make some mini, fungi-themed wall hangings to take home.


Thursday 26th April

Bees and Bugs

Back by popular demand! We dive deeper in to the wonderful world of bees and beekeeping and find out why they are responsible for putting a third of our food on our plate! We’ll go on a bug hunt in the valley and then get the tools out to construct our own bug hotel to take home. 


Friday 27th April

Pest Heroes

Come and meet some of our pest management heroes working hard to keep our endemic animals and their neighbourhoods safe. We’ll head out in to the valley spotting all things tiny, noisy and camouflaged  staying safe in ZEALANDIA’s hood too. What can you do to be a conservation hero? We’ll give you some handy tips to take home to your own backyard.
