Go wild this Spring

National parks from across the State will be showcased with the WA Parks Foundation’s Spring into Parks campaign.

This program, made possible through the support of Chevron Australia, celebrates our spectacular wilderness and access to nature.

Put together by the WA Parks Foundation in partnership with community groups, it ranges from discovering birds of the night, to stargazing in woodlands, yoga in an ancient cave and learning how to camp and cook on a campfire.

The campaign focuses on the benefits of spending time in nature for improved mental health and wellbeing, at the same time highlighting the cultural significance of the landscape and promoting the importance of conserving parks for future generations.

Running until November 28, Spring into Parks also includes a 30-day nature reboot, challenging people to reset and recharge following an extraordinary and, for many people, a stressful start to the year.

“Spring is the perfect time for Western Australians to experience our State’s natural wilderness and reap the health benefits from being outdoors,” said WA Parks Foundation Chair, Kerry Sanderson AC, CVO.

“The Spring into Parks events across the State, provide opportunities to experience and enjoy the extraordinary wealth our 101 national parks and 17 marine parks have to offer.

“Mental health and wellbeing are among the top priorities for the WA Parks Foundation at this time and the Spring into Parks program is a special opportunity for people to reset, reboot and recharge.”
