Green Spaces set to be Celebrated

Any green space that provides drinking water to one in three of the world’s 100 largest cities deserves a celebration.

Now in its third year, Parks Week is being held during March 3-9 and will celebrate the vital role parks contribute to the community.
Parks Week 2 (2)The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has created a series of over 30 activities to be held across the state and close to Sydney’s centre, providing the community with an opportunity to be involved.
With a theme of ‘connect with nature’, this year’s Parks Week is focussed on encouraging the community to step away from a busy lifestyle and to go outside and reconnect with their local parks and green spaces.
Some examples of Parks Week experiences on offer by the NPWS will include:
•A community open day at Glenrock State Conservation Area showcasing Aboriginal cultural heritage along with a range of recreational experiences offered in NSW National Parks such as mountain biking, horse riding, hang gliding, surfing, bush regeneration, art, Discovery tours and WilderQuest.
Bird Hide - Family & Ranger•  WilderQuest Wildlife Scouts event at Dorrigo National Park – an exciting new 2-hour ranger-guided quest for children to search for native wildlife in the rainforest.
• The South Coast Volcano Tour to various South Coast Parks – a fully catered all-day tour aboard a 22-seater coach with a NSW National Parks Discovery expert that promises a hands-on exploration of our ancient ‘hotspots’.
•   Cinema in the Sky in the Camp Precinct of Scheyville National Park – three nights, three fantastic films under the night sky.
• Pilliga Mountain Bike Challenge Pilliga Forest – a Mountain Bike Tour to the Salt Caves that offers a new route for cyclists ending at the Pilliga Lookout Tower.
