Local Wildlife Awareness for Kids - School holiday activity online


In Nillumbik, we are lucky to have some beautiful habitats that are home to approximately 342 amazing species of native animals.

Join Kim (wildlife rescuer, rehabilitator and Edendale educator) as she introduces you to some of the special animals of Nillumbik and talks about things you can do to help them including: building habitat gardens by planting indigenous plants, installing nest boxes and what to do if you come across an injured animal.

Kim Davis is a wildlife rescuer and rehabilitator who volunteers with a number of wildlife programs. Kim also works as one of the farm staff at Edendale farm and is an educator with Edendale's school education program.

While this is a free event, there is a ticket option to attend and donate to vetsforcompassion.org.
