As part of Activities in the Park, RiverConnect are holding an interactive turtle event on Friday 18 January at the Amphitheatre at SPC KidsTown. Presented by experts from Turtles Australia, attendees will discover the variety of freshwater turtles that live in our local waterways, with a rare opportunity to view turtles up close and learn more about the lives of these interesting reptiles.

Greater Shepparton City Council’s Manager Environment Greg McKenzie encourages families to come along.

“Families who are looking for a fun educational experience for the kids these holidays are more than welcome to come along and learn about turtles in a fun exploring environment,” Mr McKenzie said.

“They will be able to see the turtles up close and both the children and adults will learn something about our local environment.

“They can also make a day out of it and explore the play equipment KidsTown has to offer.”
