Húnaklúbburinn open house
The day was successful, with some beautiful drawings. Since the crabs were invasive and should not be released in the wild, we cooked them with some thyme and salt and had them for dinner.
Although they are delicious, Atlantic rock crabs could be a big problem in Iceland as they are competing with endemic crabs for food. First observed in Hvalfjörður in 2006, this species has quickly spread all around Iceland.
Þátttökugjald er 7.500 kr. Dagskrá, matur alla helgina og gistiaðstaða eru innifalin í gjaldinu.
Skráning fer fram hér.

Húnaklúbburinn (Cubs Club) is a youth nature club, established in 2016 for the youth of Húnaþing vestra, with the purpose of connecting youth to nature by using a combination of environmental education and nature-based recreation.
The Cubs Club is founded on two philosophical concepts. Children have the right and responsibility in shaping their own futures and the futures of their communities; and children develop a genuine appreciation of the natural environment—and a sense of their own competence—through direct interaction with nature.
Cubs Club’s activities are designed holistically to help youth develop awareness of their role in environmental stewardship, while also learning about how their culture relates to the natural and cultural landscapes.
Join us in this building knowledge process in a fun and interactive environment and help us create a greener and better future.
