Families can learn more about our local wildlife while enjoying a slew of kids activities this weekend during Family Day at the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre.
The event will include a bouncy castle, a scavenger hunt, a craft table, games and educational birds. NIWRA president, Sylvia Campbell said there might even be some friendly animals lurking about.
“There might be a big bear walking around trying to get kids into a cage,” she said.
The “Green Team” will be there, youth volunteers set up with educational artifacts, as well as a face painting station, door prizes, beverages and hot dogs.
The event is by donation and Campbell said it’s an opportunity for people to discover the centre or come back with the whole family.
“It’s just to let people know we’re here and to give back to the community for all the help they give us,” she said.
Family day happens this Saturday, June 25 from 11 a.m.to 4:30 p.m. The centre is located at 1240 Leffler Road in Errington. For more information visit www.niwra.org or call 250-248-8534.
