Living Water Trail

The Living Water Trail demonstrates that water is truly the basis of life. Every living thing relies on water to survive, and one animal which is very sensitive to changes in the environment is the frog.

Follow the frogs on this tour of self-discovery, where the coloured frogs guide you through the consequences of human intervention in their natural habitat.
