ACTIVITIES exploring the six Aboriginal seasons and learning about ducklings are planned at Yanchep National Park these school holidays.

The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attraction’s Nearer to Nature program co-ordinator Jill Francis said there would be a variety of activities to suit children of different ages.

“Children aged seven to 12 will learn about why Aboriginal people have six seasons instead of four in ‘Discovering the six seasons’ from 1pm to 2.30pm on Thursday, October 5,” she said.

“Spring (is) the perfect time to catch a cute sight of the downy ducklings and their feathered friends wandering around the water hole in the ‘Downy ducklings’ activity.”

“Children aged four to seven will listen to the duckling family’s story and make their own duckling designed craft to take home at the end of the day.”

‘`Downy ducklings’ runs from 10am to 11.30 am on Thursday, October 5.

Charges apply. Call Nearer to Nature on 9295 2244 from 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday to reserve a place.
