Children aged between eight and 14 are invited to an event which showcases animals and nature.
The Poo Dunnit party is on Thursday, September 28 at the Sea Acres Rainforest Centre and follows the success of events earlier in the year.
There will be a morning session from 10.30am until 12pm. The afternoon session is from 2.30pm until 4pm.
Activities will include matching a variety of animal scat samples to their correct ‘depositors’ and looking at all the ways scats are different and why. When is it important to be able to identify scats?
The Pobblebonk Earth Detective Club author Sue Baker will also share some stories of her animal tracking adventures in Africa.
Poo Dunnit is a chapter in her book where three children who have set up an Earth Detective Club must solve the problem of who is killing their neighbour’s chooks.
They are thrust into the world of tracks and scats in a race against time to absolve their pet dog, which the cranky old neighbour has blamed for the crime.
Can the kids fool Granny Pobblebonk, an expert animal tracker and key character in the educational children’s book?
Materials will be on hand to create a scat for a fantasy creature.
Bring the kids along to the Poo Dunnit party find out more about the book and what a Pobblebonk actually is.
