For Local Government

Do you want to create a more connected community where kids and families are outdoors, more often, for the sake of their health, happiness and connection to nature?

By bringing unstructured outdoor play (nature play) back into our children’s lives we can help their cognitive, emotional and physical development and ensure they build resilience and imagination that are so important for a fulfilling life.  And we can build stronger communities in the process!
