On Wednesday, May 22, dozens of keen young conservationists descended on Keast Park in Seaford to help ranger Kathryn plant habitat for wildlife in the dunes. These children and their families are part of an environmental group called Natured Kids.

“There are now hundreds more native grasses, tea-tree, saltbush, banksias and pigface in the sand dunes that will help reduce erosion and provide stable habitat and food for our coastal-living lorikeets, skinks, blue-tongue lizards, echidnas, possums, bush rats, cockatoos, little bats and our beneficial insects,” said naturalist, teacher and group founder Narelle Debenham. 

Narelle runs a nature playgroup for children up to six years old and Bush, Beach and Botanic School for four to 14-year-olds. “We have been meeting weekly in and around Frankston for nearly 15 years now, participating in projects for nature with many local environmental groups,” she said.  “Our mission is to inspire lifelong connections with and care for nature via outdoor play, exploration and education in our local community. 

“Giving young people opportunities to contribute to local environmental projects helps them develop hands-on skills and a sense of great connection to where they live. There are a few similar opportunities coming up if you’re keen to participate with your children.”  

For details about joining future Natured Kids efforts to assist the Peninsula’s natural environment, phone Narelle on 0431 791 379 or email oaks@bigpond.net.au

Meanwhile, Sunday, July 28, is National Tree Planting Day, and from 10am-noon Peninsula families will be able to help Frankston City Council rangers plant native grasses, shrubs and trees at Wittenberg Reserve to provide vital food and shelter for the reserve’s native birds and animals. Tickets are free and are available via Eventbrite.
