Chil­dren revel in great out­doors

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

NA­TURE Play WA held a play day event at Matilda Bay Re­serve dur­ing the hol­i­days.

Chil­dren build a fort the size of a house, waded the river and tried ‘sum­mer sled­ding’ rid­ing an ice block down the river slopes.

Na­ture Play WA chief ex­ec­u­tive Grif­fin Lon­g­ley said their mis­sion was to get kids out­doors and play­ing ev­ery day.

“This event was a show­case of some of the amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ences you can have ev­ery day,” he said.

“It was also one of the first events we have run in con­junc­tion with the Friends of Na­ture Play WA ini­tia­tive, which helps con­nect par­ents with lo­cal out­door ad­ven­ture and ex­pe­ri­ence providers.”
