In conjunction with Nature Play SA, OPAL challenged kids in the Mid North Region to complete up to 10 nature missions over the school holidays.
With family or friends kids used a Local Z card pocket guide to find appropriate parks and spaces in the local area or in their backyards to start completing missions. Once complete registered kids were able to claim fun PRIZES!
The fun is not over kids in the region can continue picking hundreds of fun out-door missions, earn points by completing missions, create an online avatar and use ‘points’ to ‘buy’ accessories for your avatar.
Lets Get started: Instructions for parents/guardians:
