Free Range Families will focus on recording, understanding and celebrating wild nature through school classes & two Bioblitzs, in May/June 2018 & 2019. Project benefits will include improved community and family cohesion, social inclusion, environmental knowledge and biodiversity records. We also have community volunteer days once Saturday afternoon per month - check out our website for details and directions (we're taking a break in Jul/Aug)!
