Looking for fun things for your kids to do during the COVID-19 restriction period? Hunter Local Land Services is here to help! Adventures at Your Place is a series of fun activities for kids to undertake in their own backyard. They post a new activity every week – so get everyone on board as your kids discover, learn about and enjoy their piece of the landscape puzzle.
Hunter Local Land Services School Engagement Officer, Jane Lloyd-Jones said with families still being asked to adhere to social distancing rules, this free activity series is a perfect way to have some fun, and explore nature – without having to travel anywhere.
“During the Adventures at Your Place activity series you will be exploring your backyard and your local bushland or creek/river, where you may be asked to research, observe, experiment and collect things that help you discover and learn about your piece of the landscape puzzle,” said Jane.
