Apart from that, there was another engaging activity for families with children aged 7 to 12. By observing the natural elements in the wetland area, including flowers, birds, insects, and trees, participants can better understand the relationship between human and nature.

Additionally, a bird-watching event with no age limit was held at the bank of Haizhu Lake, where participants could savor birds' songs and dance, following the instructions on how to use binoculars.
