This nocturnal burrowing Betong called Boodie is also known as a boodie.

Pictured here with Pauline Hewitt, Boodie will be one of the many native animals ready to greet people at the open day tomorrow.

Children and families from the local community are invited to join organisers at 120 Gilchrist Rd, Lesmurdie, between 10am and 4pm, to meet the unique native wildlife, learn about conservation and enjoy a day of fun and education.

The open day is also a great opportunity for the local community to meet resident red-tailed black cockatoo, echidnas, emu, tawny frogmouths, bilbies and reptiles; learn about work with endangered species such as woylies and bilbies; visit the hospital and see how sick, injured or orphaned native wildlife are helped; support wildlife conservation by adopting a favourite animal, donating to the hospital or finding out more about volunteering and coming to spend the day with Kanyana for the music, merchandise and face painting stalls, while walking around our beautiful grounds and enjoying the food on offer.

Fees: $5 families up to 4, $2 adults, $1 children

Parking: please park at Lesmurdie Senior High School and catch the shuttle bus travelling to and from Kanyana all day as

parking is not available at Kanyana.

Discover Kanyana is part of the Bickley Harvest Festival and the WA Heritage Festival.
