Did you know that lots of insects start life as a water bug then turn into something else when they come out of the water - like the dragonfly. Come on a fun-filled adventure with us walking through the forest, and learn amazing facts about these very important creatures. We will use a dip net to search for waterbugs in the Kangaroo River and see what they look like under a magnifying glass. We will learn where they live, what they eat and what they become when they “grow up”. You’ll need to wear sensible shoes and clothing. Pack an after activity change of clothes as you may get wet.
