Walks on the
Join us in Nature !
Saturday 6th September
8:45 am ( for a 9:00am start )
Point Cartwright , Kawana
For a different environment this Saturday we are planning to walk out to Point Cartwright at Kawana. We will look at the mouth of the Mooloolah River, walk out to the lighthouse, run along the beach and look into rock pools. To find Point Cartwright travel down to Kawana along the Nicklin Way, turn into Point Cartwright drive which veers into Harbour Parade at the end. You will see La Balsa Park where we'll meet at the playground near the toilets.
Please wear a hat and sunscreen and walking sandals will be appropriate. There are picnic tables if you want to extend the visit.
Once again, dogs can come on a leash. Hope to see as many Wowers as possible.

The vision we have with Walks on the Wildside is to reconnect people, especially children, with nature. Research shows that most children spend more time plugged into something connected to an electricity outlet than ‘plugged into’ real life.
The need to spend time in nature is inert in all people and a ‘nature deficit disorder’ can be the result of a lack of this connection. The soul needs to be replenished and this can most easily be achieved by a connection with nature. Social and learning problems such as ADHD and ADD have been proven to be helped by children relaxing and connecting with nature. With so many moves afoot to do away with or open up National Parks we need to instil in the next generation a love and respect of nature. If we expect children to grow up wanting to save wildspaces we must give them the opportunities to feel them, smell them and be one with them, then they will love them and want to protect them.
