Budding Wildlife Warriors have embraced an opportunity to explore one of the city’s most beautiful environments, the Marrambidya Wetland.
Wagga Wagga City Council’s Environmental Education Officer Alice Kent revealed a 53-strong crowd took part in this week’s Wetland Wander; a guided experience of the stunning attraction designed to inspire the next generation.
“We had children as young as two come along to learn about the wetland and take part in a range of activities,” Ms Kent said.
“I’d say the most popular activity was the fishing game run by the Wagga Wagga Urban Landcare Group.
“It engaged kids in sustainable fishing using print-outs of different species.
“The game highlighted the different kinds of fish that can be found in our area… helping kids learn which species shouldn’t be thrown back once they’re caught and what size a native fish needs to be if they are to be kept.”
