Expect everything from education sessions, bouncy castles, face painting, activities, Greenough Wildlife Park animals, NACC Coastal Community Trailer and food. 

The Little footprint, big future exhibition at the Museum of Geraldton will also be launched and allow participants to explore and discover fun choices and actions that you can take in your everyday life to help the environment.  

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn encouraged the community to attend and join in on the fun. 

“It’s going to be a fantastic day out with truckloads of activities centred around preserving our environment,” he said. “It’s so important to educate our community about the environment and the steps they can take to living a greener-lifestyle. The City is proud to support this event and help build awareness and understanding.” 

NACC Communications Officer Kym Jefferies said the event would look at how we can make small changes that have a big impact. 

Animals from Greenough Wildlife Park will be joining in the fun.

“Feral animals, plastic rubbish, taking too many fish from the ocean… these are just some of the problems in our world today,” she said. “But the good news is that no matter how big these issues seem, better choices make a difference. And all it takes are small actions from you. The goal of exhibit is to improve community capacity across a broad range of NRM issues, as well as educate, inspire and motivate young people to be looking after the environment.”

NACC Family Fun Day will take place on Saturday 7 October from 10am – 2pm at the Museum of Geraldton. 

The City of Greater Geraldton are proud to support this exhibition and awarded NACC a community grant worth $7,505 for the family fun day launch event. 

This event is presented by NACC and the Museum of Geraldton, and is supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program supported by Royalties for Regions, and the City of Greater Geraldton.
