Conservation-themed school holiday programme

Autumn school holidays are nearly upon us in New Zealand (14-29 April) and here at the Auckland Botanic Gardens we’ve put together a series of free conservation-themed activities for kids (to match our overall conservation theme that runs until July).

We’ve worked with a graduate student, our visitor services team, volunteers and an external contractor to put together  and deliver the programme, and look forward to engaging with all the families that attend.

Advertising for the programme is through our local community newspaper, online, social media, email newsletter lists and posters on site. This is traditionally very effective for us, and the advertising cost is practically $0.

Here is the overall programme – leave a comment if you’d like more details or an explanation of how we are running these activities. And let us know what you are planning for the upcoming school holidays!

    1. Hi Liz – a chew card is a simple device that helps you find out which types of animal pests are in your area. It’s basically a piece of corflute loaded with a lure (e.g. peanut butter) that the pest chews on, leaving its bite marks behind for you to interpret. Easy to make and use – here’s a link to how to make and use them: https://www.naturespace.org.nz/sites/default/files/u4/82817287-Chew-Card-Landcare-Protocol-Feb-2012.pdf
