Nature Talks

Gareth gives a nature talk

We have a number of knowledgeable staff at Lake Katherine who are able to give talks on a variety of nature-based topics.

Presentations typically last 1 hour but can be catered to your needs with staff willing to visit your school, institute, or group within 10 miles of Lake Katherine. There is a flat fee of $100 which will go towards Lake Katherine's ongoing efforts to provide quality environmental education programs, care for our animals and continue habitat restoration.
