Have a Wild Time outdoors these school holidays

Children in Alice Springs can discover their sense of adventure in a new school holiday program – Wild Time.

Wild Time takes young explorers on a voyage of discovery to investigate some of the wonderful wildlife in the Alice region.

NT Department of Tourism and Culture, Community Engagement Officer Parks and Wildlife Commission, Susie Armes said the new program was about building confidence and getting children connected with nature from an early age.

“The great outdoors is a beloved part of life in the Territory and the Wild Time program is a great way to teach children and their families how to enjoy our national parks safely and responsibly.

“Children having a Wild Time will find themselves playing the ultimate game of hide and seek while they spy, spot, search and stalk through the undergrowth while learning about the world around them.

“With a new activity each week, the Wild Time program is sure to pique the interest of even the most discerning of little explorers,” said Ms Armes.

The program is open to kids aged between 2-10 years old and all participants must be accompanied by an adult 18 years or over.

Sessions are held every Tuesday over the school holidays from 10am to 11:30am at the Alice Springs Telegraph Station.
