Discovery Program explores parks and reserves

21/12/2009

The Minister for Environment, Parks and Heritage Michelle O’Byrne is encouraging Tasmanians to enjoy the State’s parks and reserves during the summer holiday break through the Discovery Program. 


“The Discovery Program offers free activities for all ages ranging from guided walks to quiz nights and games,” Ms O’Byrne said.


 “While the Discovery Program aims to introduce children and adults to the natural and cultural history of our parks and reserves, it also encourages visitors to take care when they visit natural environments.”


“Many campgrounds are under increasing pressure and taking care with fire and litter are important, as well as behaving appropriately around native wildlife.”


The program begins on December 27 and runs until 8 February.


Activities will be held at the following parks/reserves; Arthur-Pieman, Ansons Bay/ north-east reserves; Cradle Mountain, Freycinet, Maria Island, Mt Field, Narawntapu, north-west parks and reserves, South Bruny and Tasman.


 Details of activities will be available from parks and reserves offices.
