Kidsfest Environmental activities

The kidsfest event is always a great success and we have lots of helpers including Lincoln High School students, plus a teacher. It starts with a story before the real fun begins. A range of hands on activities with an environmental theme for children and their caregivers to enjoy. Previous activities have included bird feeders, elephants from milk bottles, beads from magazines, baskets from newspaper, Chinese lanterns, Japanese origami cranes and Maori poi. The colouring in is also always popular for keeping younger children busy.

Stream Micro ecology: It is not widely understood that the slime found in streams is home to complex communities of micro-organisms, with important ecological functions. This educational poster provides a colourful and richly detailed view of the microscopic world of stream slime, or biofilms. It illustrates the diverse micro-organisms which constitute a stream biofilm, from the tiniest viruses and bacteria to the much larger (but still very small) algae, protozoa and rotifers and explains their ecological roles and interactions in stream ecosystems.
