Detective day out for the school holidays

By Riverine Herald

LOOKING for a different activity for your child these school holidays?

Parks Victoria are hosting free Junior Ranger activities designed to inspire curiosity and get children outdoors.

In Echuca, children aged between six and 12 can become a wildlife detective by learning the secrets of the bush.

They can tune their senses to discover who is hiding out of sight, and use clues to find out who was in the park while no-one was looking.

The activity will be held on July 4 from 10am to 11.30am at River Murray Reserve.

Children, who must be accompanied by a parent or guardian aged 18 or over, must bring water, sunscreen, insect repellent, and wear enclosed shoes and weather appropriate clothing.

Meet at Wills 1 campsite, by turning off the Murray Valley Hwy onto O’Dwyer Road, then continuing through the reserve.
