Celebrate National Parks Week with Amazing Race in Auckland

Published on : Saturday, March 5, 2016

National Parks WeekAward-winning UK film maker and founder of the international “Wild Thing” movement, David Bond, will lead Auckland children in an Amazing Race at Barry Curtis Park, Flat Bush, on 12 March to celebrate National Parks Week (5-13 March).

 
“The Wild Network’s mission is to help children re-learn how to roam free, play wild and connect with nature,” says David.

 
“We believe all children should have the right to access the outdoors for play, learning, expression, and – ultimately – the development of a healthy mind and body.”

 
Auckland Council will host free David Bond inspirational talk during the Amazing Race: Wild Thing Edition, which starts at 10am on Saturday 12 March.

 
“While the children are racing around our course, finding checkpoints and completing challenges themed around being out in nature, adults can join in discussions with David about what we can all do to increase “wild” play for our children,” says Council Parks and Recreation Committee Chair Councillor Christine Fletcher.

 
Wild play is unstructured outdoor play, where children’s imagination and exploratory skills are allowed to develop freely.
