Northwrite presenters, Gay Hay and Brenda Martin invite children aged 4–8 years old to explore the world of geckos at the Whangarei Museum and Heritage Park (Kiwi North) on Friday afternoon from 2–3.30 pm. Gay will read her delightfully illustrated Go, Green Gecko! while the children make close-up observations of a live green gecko. After making their own green geckos from craft materials, children and parents will have the opportunity to visit the fascinating geckos that live at the park. There is a koha of $5 per child for this workshop, with all proceeds going to Kiwi North. Parents and caregivers do not need to be attending NorthWrite to come to this event.
