If you have pre-teen kids who like science and our natural environment, consider joining the Kiwi Conservation Club, run by Forest & Bird. For $24 a year your family gets a magazine and several trips or activities each term. The WRM supports KCC by running field trips to native bush, night-time fish spotting, and hands-on activities with insects and fossils. We'd love to see more Whanganui families taking part.
