What are you doing Sunday 21st March? How does a nice, easy morning walk with the family around the Sanctuary at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve sound? Perhaps follow this with a BYO lunch at their Discovery Playground, BBQ & Picnic Area? Autumn is a great season to get outdoors and experience the wonders of nature in our region. Put on your sneakers, pack a thermos or drink bottles, don’t forget the hats and sunscreen, get your body moving and breathe the fresh air! Show your kids how amazing nature can be, and bring the grandparents or neighbours too… our first Playdates for the Planet Weekend Family Outing!
Meet from 10:30am at the Sanctuary carpark, for an 11am start. The Sanctuary Loop Short trail, which is 1.1 km, takes about 1 hr, and is set at Easy Level 1. A series of interconnected habitat zones, linked by an informative and interesting walking trail that is wheelchair friendly. Discover wallaroos, platypuses, echidnas, birds, reptiles and insects in their natural habitats.

Playdates for the Planet is a new playgroup in Canberra, with an eco-focus, hoping to bring together like-minded families who are trying to have a lower impact on the planet. We hope to have regular weekday playdates, as well as weekend outings for the whole family. Come check out the blogsite, and come along to a get together soon. See you there!
