Nature journaling is a simple and creative way for us all to learn more about our natural world and the many plants and animals living within it. It’s a fun activity for kids and an excellent way to develop their awareness and appreciation of nature. Nature journaling helps to develop scientific research skills and fosters curiosity and creativity while allowing us to slow down, pay attention and tune into nature.
Hannah will be your nature guide, showing you how to creatively record what you find and teaching you all about the native plants and animals and their relationships with each other. Drawing materials, watercolour paints, pencils, sketching paper, drawing boards, etc. will be provided and all children must be accompanied by an adult caregiver.
The EcoClassroom Sanctuary at Tatachilla Lutheran College is a 3.37 ha revegetated site, modelled on natural ecosystems that once existed in the McLaren Vale region. The sanctuary is home to native fauna including endangered Brush-Tailed Bettongs, Long-Nosed Potoroos and Tammar Wallabies, as well as lizards, frogs and birds throughout. The workshop space is a rammed earth sustainable building connected to the plants and animals surrounding.
