YANCHEP National Park school holiday activities this spring include learning about ducklings and why Aboriginal people talk about six seasons instead of four.

Nearer to Nature program coordinator Jill Francis said Yanchep National Park had a variety of activities to suit children of all 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 has sprung and it’s the perfect time catch sight of the downy ducklings and their feathered friends wandering around 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 11.30am on Thursday, October, 5.
