Natured Kids’ BUG HUNT

April 17, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, happening 11 times


Did you know there are about one million species of insects in the world and scientists guess that there are thousands yet to be discovered and named. Insects are very important. They pollinate flowers, help with pest and pollution control, they recycle organic matter to create new soil, spread seeds, produce honey, help control weeds and are food for other animals like birds and lizards!

Join us at Cruden Farm in Langwarrin with your junior entomologists for lots of ‘self-guided’ school holiday insect antics!

1.Download and print (or screen shot) the attached ‘bug hunt’ poster below to bring along

2.Book Cruden Farm visit tickets online. (Adults, please report to the Cruden Farm office to collect your ‘garden wander’ wrist bands). Children are FREE, Adults $10 each via https://www.crudenfarm.com.au

3.Pack a picnic (maybe a magnifying glass too) and enjoy the spectacular gardens whilst observing the insects, reptiles and birds that call this special place home.

*Note: it is best to leave beneficial bugs alone in their natural habitat. Please do not touch, just observe and take lots of photographs.
