Come along to our free Nelson event - ‘Our Place: Our Nature’ on Saturday 28 October from 10am to 2 pm at Branford Park, Maitai Valley.
There will be lots of exciting activities for all ages - including making tracking tunnels, flax weaving, nature walks, tent pitching, scavenger hunts, giant board games and discovering what freshwater critters live in the Maitai River.
Learn all about nature, and the interesting things that can be found in your own backyard. There will be quizzes to complete, and games to play.
We will also be launching a new Toyota Kiwi Guardians Adventure site (see link) which is located on the Branford Park Edible Walk. Come along, explore the site, and earn yourself a Toyota Kiwi Guardians medal.
There will be no food for sale onsite, so bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it. Please help us by taking your rubbish home with you.
Please note there is very limited parking on site, we suggest parking on Nile Street and either walking or cycling to Branford Park.
