Nature Play kids celebrate Flinders Chase Park of the Month
06 December 2017
Natural Resources Kangaroo Island landscape ranger, Deb Laver, said local families built cubbies in the scrub, went hiking and off-road bike riding and created pieces of nature art.
“We teamed up with Parenting KI and local artist Ky Alecto to provide a family eco-art experience, which was the school holiday event’s biggest drawcard,” Ms Laver said.
“Friends of Parks Kangaroo Island Western Districts helped with the Flinders Chase community open day by taking families on a marine debris clean-up along Sandy Beach.”
Ms Laver said the open day coast and marine focus provided the kids with the chance to learn about beach nesting birds and how to share the beach with them, as well as use an underwater video camera to monitor KI’s marine environments.
“Flinders Chase National Park provides a wonderful space for children to play and it is hoped that Nature Play activities will become a regular fixture on the park’s calendar,” she said.
