NEW! Citizen Science Workshops

Citizen Science School Holidays

These workshops are designed to be educational and lots of fun. You can make a direct contribution to citizen science research through skill-based learning and increase their understanding of environmental issues affecting our waterways. Workshops on offer in January are ‘Hollows as Homes’, ‘Waterbug Blitz’, ‘Native Bees and Insects’ and ‘Birds of Woodlands and Wetlands’.

See all Citizen Science Workshops.

Leisure Centres School Holidays

Council’s Leisure Centres have another packed schedule of swimming and sporting activities to keep kids active and busy these holidays. A variety of swimming programs will be held at Council’s pools. The sport centres will host soccer, basketball and multisport clinics, as well as fun sessions with obstacle courses, slides and jumping castles. Autism and sensory friendly sports sessions will be also held at Niagara Park Stadium for children that require more space in a quieter environment.
