(Seed) Bombs Away! – School Holiday Workshop
April 13, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Learn more about local plants and pollinating animal species and then get busy (and a little bit grubby) making native seed bombs. These little packages of seeds, clay and soil can be thrown into hard-to-reach places where they will sit until conditions are right for them to spring into action, providing food and habitat for local pollinators.
Ages: ALL (children under 5 must be accompanied by an adult) Cost: FREE
Discover the power of pollinators this school holidays with a series of art-making and environmental education workshops presented by Orange Regional Gallery and Orange Regional Museum.
Each session will include a visit to the Pollinators exhibition at Orange Regional Museum followed by a hands-on activity in the West Room, Orange Regional Gallery. Children will learn about the crucial role that pollinators play in sustaining biodiversity and human health while getting to know some of our local plants and pollinating animals. There will also be time to admire the giant ‘swarm’ of artworks created by hundreds of local school children.
Pollinators is on show at Orange Regional Museum from 20 March – 9 May 2021. Entry is FREE.
