Bring the family and a picnic to celebrate the launch of the Wild Families program with the Victorian National Parks Association and friends at Yarra Bend Park in Fairfield.

Grown-ups and children are encouraged to join us to:
  • Be wild animals and have your face painted as an Australian animal.
  • Be wild explorers and map your discoveries on the Bushland Circuit Trail.
  • Be wild artists and create nature-based artwork by the Yarra River.
  • Be wild scientists with binoculars, microscope and wildlife cameras at the Scientists’ Tent.
  • Dress wild – but don't forget that it should also be practical for an outdoor adventure!
 
Wild Families Launch
Sunday, 23 April from 11am-2pm,
Yarra Bend Park, Fairfield. 
Registration essential at wildfamilies.eventbrite.com.au
 
Wild Families is a new program that supports families with children under 12 years old to enjoy, learn about, and look after nature together. The program works with local councils and land managers to develop fun resources for families to enhance their enjoyment of nature.
 
These resources include activities that can be done anywhere, feature special locations to discover nature, a sneak peek into the family life of Victorian wildlife, and fun ways to care for nature. There will be four Wild Families outdoor activities each year.

Registrations are essential! Book at wildfamilies.eventbrite.com.au
 
Wild Families is a Victorian National Parks Association program with support from Bank Australia’s Impact Fund.
