Description

PARENTS

In 2 hours, discover more than 20 ways to engage your sons in urban green spaces that are healthy, developmental and restorative for their bodies and brains.

This is a highly informative, conversational tour for Mums and Dads of boys in the primary school years.

Bring your walking shoes! We will walk around the trails and play spaces investigating all kinds of possibilities for active adventure. Along the way, you will also learn about some of the modern research studies that link child health and development issues with physical activity and nature-connection.

Please bring suitable clothing, your phone/camera and a note pad. On the day you will also receive a brief field guide on activities that parents can use to engage their kids in more outdoor play that is fun, developmental and healthy. The field guide also includes links to additional resources.

Tickets: $20 + ticketing fee

YOUR GUIDE

This session is lead by Michael Hann, who is a Dad, co-founder of Nature Smart Kids, a volunteer Cub Scout Leader at Scouts Victoria and a professional educator on the evidence-base (more than 600 studies) that links nature-connection and adventurous play with improvements in child health and development.

Michael brings lots of experience in designing and guiding outdoor adventures for children. You will never look at your backyard, parkland or any other habitat the same way after spending a few hours outdoors with Michael.

For examples of programs designed and lead by Michael, check out: www.naturesmartkids.org/wildwoodkids/. You may also be interested in Scouts Victoria, which has many adventurous programs for youth: www.scoutsvictoria.com.au.

To find your local parklands and other green spaces for nature play, please visit your local council website. City of Darebin residents can start here: http://bit.ly/2eZmLCh.
