Research shows that connection with nature, in particular with waterways, is good for our physical, mental and social health.
Healthy Waterways’ annual Connect to your Creek Week encourages the South East Queensland community to get outdoors and enjoy their local waterways. Through working with our members to host waterway events such as creek walks, canoe tours, tree plantings and bike trails, people were provided with the opportunity to connect with their local creek.
Healthy Waterways was proud to support Queensland Health’s Healthier. Happier. campaign through the 2015 Connect to Your Creek Week initiative. Many the events that took place during 21 to 19 March 2015 encouraged the community to get active outdoors through activities such as yoga by the sea, and guided river canoe tours.
