Get Exploring with Nature Passport
Our international app, developed with leading environmental education group IslandWood, to get kids and families playing, exploring, and learning outdoors.
Get started straight away with our web app - no need to download!
Research shows that spending time outdoors is an essential part of a healthy, well-balanced childhood. Nature Passport encourages and motivates children to have fun engaging with their environment wherever that may be—from backyards and city parks, to beaches and other wild places.
When using our app, kids look up, not down. The goal is to engage with the natural world, with the app working as a support.
“I had a lot of fun with my daughter on our first outing with this app! One of the natural sculpture activities really kept her engaged for a long time... it allowed her to be creative and she loved being able to record the experience!” - Jessica Henderson (Facebook user)
Activities can be enjoyed by children and adults of any age, and can be filtered by type of environment, season, duration, difficulty, and more.
There are over 100 activities to choose from - all designed by experts in outdoor play and experiential education!
Tips on using the app as a family, are available at: https://www.naturepassport.org/families
Nature Passport Activity Booklets
“We did a lot of the activities while we were there [in York] for the weekend, (it) made my child look closer at her surroundings and find activities that were not ‘toys’” – Shire of York visitor speaking about the Shire of York Nature Passport.
Working hand-in-hand with the app are Nature Passport activity booklets that we’ve developed in partnership with local governments and community organisations.
