Free family fun for World Environment Day

Posted: 5am 26 May 2022

Caboolture Region Environmental Education Centre will be filled with animals, games and hands-on fun for World Environment Day.

Mayor Peter Flannery says free activities will keep visitors busy during the CREEC Enviro Explorers event on June 4.

“You can tackle the all-abilities playground, featuring a wheelchair accessible play area, sensory walls, flying foxes and slides - or get your hands dirty with a seedling planting workshop,” he says.

Performers ranging from The Little Wattlebird Band and a play by Larrikin Puppets to talks about Aussie wildlife will fill the stage, with children learning about the environment through song, shows and reptile demonstrations.

Visitors can also download the Agents of Discovery app to unlock an interactive educational bushwalk around the centre.

Celebrate and learn

Councillor Tony Latter (Div 12) is looking forward to seeing the community explore the natural environment.

“It’s a great way to celebrate World Environment Day,” he says.

“Kids can explore native wildlife, snakes, reptiles and little critters with live shows and interactive displays.

“They can choose from an array of enviro-themed workshops and the more adventurous explorers may want to tackle the huge rock-climbing wall.”

Food for thought

There will be information stalls for parents and market stalls offering environmentally friendly products.

Grab a bite to eat from a food vendor or bring a packed picnic and blanket.

CREEC Enviro Explorers will run from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, June 4 at Caboolture Region Environmental Education Centre, 150 Rowley Rd, Burpengary.

The free event is presented by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
