Whareroa Farm - visit by Pre-Schoolers

12 preschool children and 4 caregivers visited Whareroa Farm today to explore the Kohekohe bush loop track.

Several glossy brown wetas were spotted in the 'motels'. An empty nest was passed round - the outer loosely woven grass contrasting with a very smooth interior. The grates (ground level grids which keep sheep and cattle out of certain areas) were of interest as was the sighting of hamburger buns growing out of a tree trunk - large flat cream-coloured fungi!

After lunch, served at one of the new picnic tables near the entrance, everyone took the opportunity to play on the recently mown areas. All were keen to bring their mums and dads, brothers and sisters back for another visit to Whareroa farm.
