Anna from Upper Snowy Landcare and Antia from Waterwatch visited Berridale Public School on Thursday 19th June and had a fantastic day with the kids.
They walked down the Myack Creek and we got them to be “Bug Detectives” looking for the bugs that were in their creek and comparing them with the bugs we had bought along from the Badja river near Numeralla. The kids were able to figure out which was the more healthy habitat and talk about what makes a healthy river and what we can do to help.
We then introduced them to “Bill” our platypus and they heard all about Platypuses, their habitat, how they live and how important it is for platypuses to have healthy rivers to live in.
The day was a big success!
Thanks to Berridale Public and all their kids for coming along and to Antia Brademann for helping out.
