Mitchell River Kids Day is for Upper Primary School Students in the Mitchel River Catchment, held on the last Friday in May. MRKD is a Junior Landcare event for upper primary school students from the Mitchell River Catchment including Mt Molloy, Julatten, Biboohra, Mareeba, Mutchilba, Dimbulah, Walkamin and Chillagoe schools.
MRKD allows students to experience hands on environmental activities and agricultural innovations. The day gets students out of the classroom and learning from experts in their fields, giving students an appreciation for sustainable agriculture and the challenges of producing food in our region.
Our first event was Healthy Kids Healthy Waterways in 2014 at the Mareeba Wetlands. Watch this space for details on the next Mitchell River Kids Day!
