Making cord

from Lomandra

There are a great many useful plants in the bush. Today we will explore making our own cord (twine) out of the common native plant called Lomandra. A fantastic bush skill to learn and a handy item to have around your camp, great for lashings, hanging items, making traps, shoe laces etc…

Today we let our imaginations run wild! We will start by exploring the bush for inspiration- pieces of driftwood, lichen, banksia flowers, twigs and leaves etc…. Then we will get to work transforming our finds into nature puppets using glue,wire, string and wood. If we have time we can even put on a puppet show!

Mon 8th Nest Boxes

What is a nest box? It is a home for wildlife. Did you know it can take up to 200 years for a suitable hollow to form for homes for some our native wildlife? You think Byron shire has a housing shortage!! Let’s give them a hand by making habitat boxes. We go construction crazy! Bring on the hammers, nails, saws and paint.

Frid 12th Bush Cooking

Bring your hungry bellies for some fine bush fare! We will be cooking up a storm, gathering native ingredients together and learning about the plants as we go.

All activities will run from 9-3pm and are based outdoors for the entire day. We meet outside the Brunswick Heads Surf Life Saving Club and then head into the bush (except for canoeing days. When canoeing we meet adjacent to the river. Notice will be sent via email on where to meet).

The activities presented on any given day may change due to weather, numbers and other unforeseen circumstances. In the case of wet weather we set up basic tarp shelters. Each day is interspersed with games, sacred circles, 'sit spot' (nature meditation), a swim if weather permits and other nature connection activities.

Cost is $60* per day per child. 10% discount for siblings.
