The Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife Service award-winning Discovery Program inspires 30,000 visitors a year through providing free, fun and educational activities within Tasmania’s National Parks.
Education programs aim to:
- Connect people to their parks and reserves, and the heritage values inherent within them.
- Encourage visitors, school children and community groups to conserve Tasmania’s natural and cultural heritage.
- Use parks and reserves as a platform to improve the community’s health and wellbeing.
Over the summer Soul Stronger director, Alana, has been facilitating programs in mindfulness, movement and creativity to enable visitors to National Parks connect to each other and nature.
