Conservation-themed school holiday programme
by Julia Watson, Auckland Botanic Gardens
Autumn school holidays are nearly upon us in New Zealand (14-29 April) and here at the Auckland Botanic Gardens we’ve put together a series of free conservation-themed activities for kids (to match our overall conservation theme that runs until July).
We’ve worked with a graduate student, our visitor services team, volunteers and an external contractor to put together and deliver the programme, and look forward to engaging with all the families that attend.
Advertising for the programme is through our local community newspaper, online, social media, email newsletter lists and posters on site. This is traditionally very effective for us, and the advertising cost is practically $0.
Here is the overall programme – leave a comment if you’d like more details or an explanation of how we are running these activities. And let us know what you are planning for the upcoming school holidays!
