DWELLINGUP Forest Heritage Centre has developed a new nature exploration and learning playscape after a $20,000 donation from Alcoa Mining.
Opening later this year the new playscape will build on the existing attractions at the centre.
The attractions include a nature based interpretive centre and walk trails, a tree top platform into the jarrah forest canopy, a display of life sized emu sculptures, and a giant nest sculpture which children can climb into.
Dwellingup Forest Heritage Centre manager Shani Holster said work of local volunteers and the support of organisations had resulted in a vibrant centre which nurtured learning and creativity in the arts, the natural environment, and in local heritage.
“The support that Alcoa has given the Centre since its rebirth three years ago has been invaluable and we are excited about the new Nature Playscape,” she said.
