With the school holidays coming just around the corner, finding something new and exciting to do is becoming difficult. Luckily, Lismore City Council is holding a free school holiday fun day, Upcycle Your School Holidays, to save you from a day of boredom.

Council is inviting all ages to come together and explore, create, repair, plant and have fun while learning more about recycling and our local native plants and animals.

Different activities at Upcycle Your School Holidays include making beeswax wraps, koala watching, creating a nesting box, planting seeds, using 3D models to find out where our water comes from and where it goes, and exploring the local environment with nature activities.

Children must be accompanied by a supervising adult, and you need to bring hats, covered shoes and plenty of drinking water.

There is no need to book, just come along to the Environment Education Centre, located within the Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre at 313 Wyrallah Road, East Lismore.

‘This is a wonderful day for families – it is outdoors in the sunshine, great for little ones, involves learning and play, and is all free,’ said Council’s Waste Education Officer Barbara Jensen.

The event will be held on the 16th of April from 10am to 2pm at the Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre.
