Helping Hands in Bushlands

The Pfadfinder Joeys and Cubs enjoyed a little hike up Red Hill with their families.

The kids did a great job climbing up the steep hills, to enjoy some beautiful views. They also used a compass to figure out which paths to take, located landmarks in the distance (like the arboretum and the airport), learned how to identify bush tomatoes, and hunted for Easter eggs.

While they were there, they did the scouting thing and offered their helping hands (and feet) to care for the environment. Everyone joined in a weed pulling competition (authorised by the Red Hill Regenerators nature park care group – otherwise no picking plants in the nature reserve!), which was both fun and helpful.
