Monthly Sessions


The Junior Conservation Club combines hands-on experiences and fun activities to allow young people to become actively involved in Cleland Wildlife Park’s commitment of creating a sustainable environment, which can be enjoyed by everyone. 

 Monthly Sessions:

1.            This is a great way to interact and connect with Australian animals and nature.

2.            Learn and understand ways to help and conserve our plants and wildlife. 

3.            Find out the amazing ways our animals help our environment.

On the last Sunday of every month (excluding the first two session, see below). Cleland Wildlife Park will run a 2-hour session, with each month focusing on a different conservation or environmental topic.  Spots are limited per session, so be quick to select the dates you wish to book.
