Waterbugs are small animals that live for all, or part, of their lives in water. Learn about the water bugs that feed the platypus of Diamond Creek, and see what they look like under a magnifying glass in this hands-on activity.
These workshops run for 30 minutes and will provide insight into different kinds of water bugs, including:
- dragonfly larvae

All ages are welcome. Please note there are two workshop sessions, limited to a maximum of 25 people each.
