Adelaide National Park City has officially launched a free nature-based ideas list '50 ways', designed to get you closer to nature. We’ve selected our top picks from each category to get you started.
The list covers everyday activities for the outdoors and indoors, as well as at home, school and at work.
According to National Park City Project Lead, Sheryn Pitman '50 ways' has been created to bring people and nature together for everyone, everywhere, everyday.
“The '50 ways' list has something for everyone. The aim is to encourage people to make time for nature in their everyday lives. There are many benefits to living a greener, healthier and nature rich life," Sheryn said.
“We can connect with nature in many easy ways no matter what stage we’re at in our lives. We are excited to see how '50 ways' will inspire people to get involved with Adelaide National Park City”.
Here are 10 ways you can kick off your '50 ways' adventure:
