15 children from Nairobi Academy Kindergarten, visited City Park on 9th November 2015 for a Dudu Walk. The walk started at 9:30 am and ended at 11:30 am. This was a very informative and exciting walk. With the help of a guide from Nature Kenya Youth Committee, the children were able to spot various dragonflies, bees, flies, grasshoppers and butterflies.
The children got to learn about insects and the main areas taught included:
- The main insect body parts (head, thorax and abdomen)
- Flower pollination by bees and butterflies and why pollination is important
- How bees protect themselves from their enemies by stinging
- Insect metamorphosis and they were able to spot a caterpillar
- How to conserve insect habitats.
The children were also able to spot anthills and had the opportunity of feeding three grasshoppers. They were also able to see monkeys and the White Jacaranda.
Thank you Friends of City Park for arranging this informative walk!
