Halloween PlantBank Party
On Sunday 28 October the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan
is out to prove that science can be stranger and spookier than fiction, at the very first and totally free Halloween PlantBank Party
Kids will have the chance to become a scientist for the day and discover the amazing superpowers that nature has and how gross and gory it can really be on a tricky activity trail.
Our real-life scientists will have fantastic activity stations to learn about pumpkin planting, rainforest fruit and seed conservation, and even learning about animals from scats (the scientific word for poop!) from the woodlands.
For those fans of creepy crawlies, frogs and tadpoles and even colourful peacock spiders will be on display. Kids can also face the scariest thing of all - their own reflection after freaky facepainting!
The Witches’ Kitchen will serve up dramatic fun thanks to the Eaton Gorge Theatre
, and frightfully delicious food and coffee will be available for purchase.
With prizes for best dressed be sure to wear your spookiest outfit and don’t forget to pack your wits!
