Mandurah Performing Arts Centre
“The Flock” has landed in Mandurah! Be part of this fun activity and paint your own shorebird stencil and learn about our local shorebirds of our wetland. We aim to paint 200 shorebirds on this Friday morning at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre (MANPAC). The 200 colourful Flock will migrate to different locations over the festival weekend as a traveling art installation. Keep tabs on PHCC social media to watch where your painted shorebird migrates to.
“The Flock” activity was originally developed by Pukorokoroo Miranda Naturalists’ Trust in New Zealand, to help raise awareness about the threats facing our migratory shorebirds. Here in Mandurah the local Men’s Shed have generously created 200 wooden stencils and the local Bushranger Cadets from John Tonkin College have been involved by preparing the stencils, all now ready to be colourfully designed. This activity is great for the kids, so bring your family along and paint a shorebird stencil and help raise awareness of how special our local shorebirds are.
No RSVP necessary.
