Over Summer in Tasmania, the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service brings people together in the outdoors by offering a wide range of activities including searching for creatures in rock pools, weed-busting and wildlife walks at night.
Each year the program connects with app. 30,000 people across Tasmania.
The program has developed over the 36 years it has been operating – the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service now partners with community groups to conduct activities.
It is hoped that this approach will develop a greater sense of custodianship in the National Parks of Tasmania and encourage people to attend programs for social, health and educational reasons.
The 2014/2015 program is offering fly-fishing, storytelling, penguin adventures, challenging walks and beach yoga. Activities will be conducted at the following locations:
- Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area
- Northwest coast
- Narawantapu National Park and the northern coast
- Tamar Island Wetlands
- Northeast coast
- Bay of Fires Conservation Area
- Freycinet National Park
- Maria Island National Park
