GET in touch with the great outdoors as part of the City of Gosnells’ Homegrown Festival’s Eco Adventures event series.

The activity series showcases Gosnells’ rich and lush local natural environment and encourages people to explore the great outdoors.

The Bickley Valley Canoeing event on February 18 allows participants to take part in a number of activities including obstacle courses, games and races, or simply enjoy a leisurely paddle on the reservoir.

On the messier side of things, Muddy Gully on February 19 is perfect for children aged between two and six years, who can enjoy a hands-on, muddy play experience with natural clay and minerals, ‘potion’ mixing and water play.

For the fishing fanatics, the Family Fishing Clinic on February 24 teaches participants about Recfishwest, good fishing practices, casting and general safety, followed by a free fishing session.

Meanwhile, the creative kids can join in with the Cubby Building demonstration on March 1 and learn simple knot tying and cooperation to build cubbies from natural materials and play wilderness awareness games.
