Mission: To support the engagement of youth in their environment through play, curiosity, exploration and creativity while giving them the tools they need to find solutions to environmental problems.

Offerings will include:

  • Nature-based play, games, crafting, creek exploration

We aim to get kids outside and support them to have active engagement in their environment through play, curiosity and exploration. By gaining a sense of place, youth will have a better knowledge of their local flora and fauna and how they impact their environment.
