The event was hosted by Environment Southland and the University of Otago's NZ Marine Studies Centre.
A highlight for Ahmani Ryan-Pikia (11) was the touch-tank.
"We did a beach clean-up and watched two presentations, and I did all the stations in the hall."
The event's focus was on connecting people with their local environment, and Ryder Davies (6, pictured) and his family travelled from Gore to be there.
People were able to chat with farmers who have set up catchment groups in Aparima.
Environment Southland education officer Pat Hoffmann said it was "a good way for people to meet farmers taking action".
