Our Network turns 20 years young in 2019!

Twenty years later we have all reasons to celebrate. Lots has been achieved, many goals have been reached, and many will continue to receive volunteer input. Our enthusiasm and dedication are undiminished. We continue to strive for biodiversity protection, and healthy creeks and catchments. Our volunteers are doing an outstanding job. We can all be very proud of our achievements. Happy Birthday, CWCN!

CWCN Summer Holiday Activities are coming up!

CWCN offers another array of exciting summer holiday activities in December 2019 and January 2020. Don't let your children miss out on all the fun. Of course, we'll start with Christmas decorations and create trees and ornaments from nature's treasures and discards, we'll explore the butterfly world with Fenella Flutterwing and caterpillar Munching Mike, use the self-created simple solar ovens to cook and bake tasty morsels, hear stories from the wild, and last but not least explore the dirt beneath our feet, learn all about soil and life in it, and use different soils to paint. All our activities come with oodles of fun. They are always very popular. Check out the flyer with registration form here and secure a spot for your child soon.
