Event update: We know the weather report is not looking good, but a little rain won't stop us!

Even if the music day can't go ahead, KGT & DOC will still be at Memorial Lawn at 11am to lead some rain-friendly nature activities. Come with your rain coat and gummies, take a bush walk with us, and hear more about the Kids Greening Taupo event series!

....Fun easy activities to teach children about conservation easy to replicate in your back yard is the aim of the new Kids Greening Taupō Event Series for young families, in partnership with the Department of Conservation.

The series will be launched at the Music in the Reserve event at the Waipahihi Botanical Gardens, on the Memorial lawn, focusing on nature sensory activities ideal for the young.

The launch activities will include exploring New Zealand’s nocturnal creatures in a darkness tent by torch, art with natural resources, eye spy tubes, nature colour charts, and getting to know water and land insects by magnifying glass. There will also be storytime in the locally made felt Yazebo with bush scenes.

Four further events will follow throughout the year including building homes for insects and learning how to catch predators. Toyota Kiwi Guardian medals can be learnt by the children participating in the activities.

Enjoy the further entertainment in the gardens this day with wonderful musicians playing. Bring a picnic!
