Island Bay Junior Nature Day


  • Tue 26 Apr 2022, 1:00pm–3:00pm


All Ages

Looking to get exploring and connect the kids with nature these school holidays?
Are you and your family keen to learn about Wellingtons’ common plants and species and have some time outdoors?

Te Whanganui-a-Tara / Wellington is the most species rich city in New Zealand, and we are proud to be getting our friends together for some special events throughout the city these holidays.

Events are back and the skies the limit, so come and join us to celebrate and promote the global City Nature Challenge for 2022! The WCC Play crew have teamed up with local nature experts who will guide us through bush, streams, coastlines, and wild Wellington wilderness, on the hunt for interesting wildlife!

We have teamed up with our friends from Everyone Out and Project Jonah to bring an afternoon of play, exploration, art, and lots of learning. You can expect to learn something new about different plant and fungi species, explore the area, learn about raranga (weaving), and many more fun activities.

We will also tell you all about iNaturalist and local experts will share their knowledge and taonga.

Join one, or all our fun events, for free.

Please register so we can keep track of numbers.

Meeting point: Island Bay Scout Hall – Dover St Berhampore

Getting there: It’s just a short walk from Adelaide Road so you can take the Bus to Island Bay and get off just past Wakefield Park.

What to bring: Bring a drink bottle, and a spare layer of clothing to keep warm and dry. If you’re able to, download iNaturalist on your mobile phone before you arrive so you’re ready to go. Please note, it’s not essential to bring a mobile phone, there will be lots of fun to be had without one.
