Leap into Nature @ Dandenong Ranges National Park


Our Junior Nature Club will be visiting the Dandenong Ranges National Park.  We will explore spirals in nature and awaken all our senses on a special walk through the Mountain Ash Forest.

Meeting place is at the Grants Picnic Ground car park. To the right of the shops.

We will be doing the Margaret Lester Forest Walk which is 300 m on easy tracks which are pram friendly and great for those with limited mobility. We will then gather on the grassy area behind the undercover area for some follow up activities.
