Pencil Park is an amazing wetland reserve tucked away in a quiet corner of Keysborough. Quiet was not the word for the final workshop, however, as the Ambassadors from the City of Greater Dandenong were treated to the sounds of several of the native frogs that live here.
The Ambassadors learned all about them from Jess, and black-tailed cockatoos flew past as the students headed off to slip back in time with indigenous guide, Dean.
A look at the macro invertebrate of the wetlands and a dolphin and whale fin activity rounded off the days workshop.
No session here is complete without a barbecue, and the kids couldn’t resist playing in the puddles that had formed after the heavy rain the day before. A spectacular end to a busy year!
