Council has partnered with the People and Parks Foundation for #NaturePact 2022!
This September we encourage you to make use of our great parks and reserves and commit to spending time in nature each day for your health and wellbeing. Why? Because we are all part of nature, and nature connects, heals, and sustains us all.
Through ongoing research, science is now catching up with ancient and living Traditional Owner wisdom that connecting with nature is more than a ‘nice to have’ part of our lives – it plays a key role in our ongoing health and wellbeing at every stage of life.
This September, join us as we explore how each and every one of us can build our own personal Nature Dose, using all our senses to connect with nature wherever we are. As the change of season emerges, we’ll take you on a journey through four weekly #NaturePact themes, connecting you to the beauty, joy, health, and wellbeing benefits that nature offers us all.
The cost? 2 hours of your time a week. Our promise? Time with nature is always time well spent.
