Branch out with City of Stirling’s Tree Trail in April school holidays

FAMILIES are encouraged to branch out into nature these school holidays at Lake Gwelup Reserve.

The City of Stirling’s Tree Trail is an educational free activity where children follow a map to visit 25 trees around the reserve, with a sign at each one detailing the species living there.

Each sign contains a letter and once children have collected them all they will reveal a secret that may lead to a prize.

The Eco Faeries will be running activities along the trail from 9.30am to 11.30am daily.

Mayor Mark Irwin said the event was a great way for children to get outdoors and learn something new.

“It’s so important that our children spend time outside playing and enjoying nature with their friends and family,” he said.

“The Tree Trail also encourages young people to learn more about the all of the benefits trees provide and helps to cultivate an appreciation for their natural environment.”

The trail will take between one and a half and three hours to complete and runs on weekdays from April 16 to 27.
