Create your miniature worlds (5-9 years)


Make a self-sustaining terrarium environment inside a small glass container with small plants, stones, decorations and tiny wingless insects called springtails.

Please bring your own glass container with a lid to create your terrarium in. The best sizes would be between the size of a cup and a large mug. Make sure it is thoroughly clean and rinsed with fresh water.

All other materials will be provided.

Presented by Willoughby City Bushland team in collaboration with Willoughby City Library.
