Inquiring minds will have the opportunity to explore and discover during National Science Week, with plenty of events coming up in the Murraylands. 

If you’re out in the region why not drop past Frahn’s Farm at Monarto to learn about Woodland Birds?

With the presence of woodland birds in decline, 35-year-old woodland plantings in the Monarto region offer a suitable habitat. 

If you’re looking to develop your telescope skills, then Cambrai is the place to be this Saturday night.

Three one-night events will be presented for visitors to learn tlescope basics: how to set it up, alignment, focus and, of course, how to find objects in the sky.
