The Junior Group
is specifically designed for children and teenagers and their families. This
group aims to encourage an interest in our natural
environment and its study among young people. Monthly meetings involve a short talk by an
interesting speaker and discussion of exhibits brought in
by the members. Excursions are held every month, as well
as a Summer and Easter camp. Junior or Family Membership
also entitles you to receive the monthly newsletter The
Meetings & Excursions
All meetings held at Club Rooms, 1 Gardenia St Blackburn,
starting at 7.30pm on the last Friday of every month except December.
Contact Program Co-ordinator Claire Ferguson email: firstname.lastname@example.org for further details on activities.
On days of extreme weather
conditions, please ring to check if excursion is cancelled.
