Parks Week 2015 set to highlight valuable role of open space

Parks Week 2015 set to highlight valuable role of open space
March 9, 2015

Parks Week, the international celebration of the important role that parks play in the health of local communities and the natural environment, begins today (Monday 6th March) and continues until Sunday 15th March.

This annual celebration includes a range of formal and informal events across Australia and New Zealand with the aim of:

• Highlighting and celebrating the important role parks play – for people, communities, and the natural environment
• Encouraging greater use of parks
• Celebrating the contribution that volunteers make to parks
• Promoting the ‘healthy parks, healthy people’ message

Backed by agencies in Australia including the NSW Parks and Wildlife Service, National Parks South Australia, and the Western Australian Department of Parks and Wildlife along with the Wellington City Council and Greater Wellington Regional Council in New Zealand, a range of predominantly free events are available to the public.

Parks Week will see over 35 great tours and events held in NSW national parks, on the theme ‘connect with nature’.

Wombeyan Karst Conservation Reserve, the oldest nature reserve in Australia, will celebrate its 150th anniversary with a public festival showcasing the local environment. There will be entertainment, exclusive cave tours, and overnight camping packages are available so you can stay the weekend.

Activities across NSW include Aboriginal Discovery programs, ranger talks, wilderness walks, native tree plantings and WilderQuest tours for kids. You can take a surfing lesson or a guided kayak tour in pristine waters, explore lush rainforest on a mountain biking or 4WD adventure, or spot native wildlife on a sunset hike.
