When do we meet?

Generally on the last Thursday of each month (except January and December). Meetings start at 6:45 pm for a 7.00pm start and finish no later than 8.15pm.

Where do we meet?

At the Bellevue Heights Primary School, Vaucluse Crescent, Bellevue Heights, South Australia 5050

What do we do:

A different guest speaker gives a presentation at each meeting. Topics cover a huge range of animals and nature such as bats, frogs, bears, sharks, the stars and planets, Antarctica and so forth. Where possible, live specimens of the relevant animal are brought to the meeting.

Children are encouraged to bring along any interesting specimen (eg fossil, insect, etc) for “show-and-tell”.

Occasional FIELD TRIPS are held each year.

Parents are encouraged to attend the meetings and share the experience with their children.
