Join the outdoor fun at the Prom these school holidays

Monday 16 September, 2013

Are you ready to celebrate spring and get the kids out into nature these September school holidays?

Children are invited to join the fun at Wilsons Promontory National Park where Junior Ranger activities will run from 23 September to 1 October 2013.

The range of activities will include learning how to identify animals from the evidence they leave behind, discovering why native plants are important and exploring rock pools to find, watch and touch some of the creatures that live there.

Parks Victoria Ranger in Charge, Brett Mitchell, said the Junior Ranger Program was a great way to encourage children to get outdoors and have fun in nature.

“These activities are designed to inspire curiosity and help teach kids about the natural world around them. It’s wonderful to see them getting out of the lounge room and enjoying Victoria’s beautiful parks,” he said.

Junior Rangers is not a club; no membership is required to take part. Junior Ranger programs are run mostly during school holidays and on some weekends.
