THE ABCS OF PHYSICAL LITERACY Just as learning your ABCs sets the foundation for learning to read and write, learning the ABCs of movement (Agility, Balance, Coordination, Speed) sets the foundation for physical literacy and an active life. Physical literacy is the development of many different types of movement like throwing, kicking, running, catching, and kicking that allow kids to build their skill sets and allow them to be involved in a number of different types of activities as they get older. For example, if you cannot throw, you will not be able to play baseball, softball, football, rugby, etc. By teaching these skills and movement patterns early, kids have a better chance at engaging in many sports and staying active for life.

ACTIVE START NEW PARENT & TOT 18mths-3yrs Help your child explore new movement in this learn through play program. Enjoy leadercoordinated activities, songs, and games, as well as joining your child in free play. Create positive physical activity experiences with your child, right from the start!

THE ABCS OF PHYSICAL LITERACY Just as learning your ABCs sets the foundation for learning to read and write, learning the ABCs of movement (Agility, Balance, Coordination, Speed) sets the foundation for physical literacy and an active life. Physical literacy is the development of many different types of movement like throwing, kicking, running, catching, and kicking that allow kids to build their skill sets and allow them to be involved in a number of different types of activities as they get older. For example, if you cannot throw, you will not be able to play baseball, softball, football, rugby, etc. By teaching these skills and movement patterns early, kids have a better chance at engaging in many sports and staying active for life.

ACTIVE ABCS 5-7yrs

NEW

Active ABCs teaches the overall development of fundamental movement skills such as running, jumping, catching, kicking and throwing. Additional games and sport-specific skills will be taught in a child-friendly manner ensuring your child continues to practice the necessary skills for a future of physical activity.

With 168 parks, Saanich Parks has something for everyone – ocean beaches, creeks, lakes, meadows, forests, playgrounds, gardens, viewpoints, multi-use trails and sportsfields. Working in Partnership with the community, our mission is to create a quality of life that supports healthy lifestyles and preserves and protects our natural environment.

Volunteers are integral to invasive plants management and restoration efforts in Saanich. Saanich is working to provide volunteer opportunities and partnerships to protect and restore natural areas. Saanich's Pulling Together Volunteer Program supports volunteer efforts to remove invasive plants and restore ecosystems. Our longest running program is the Garry Oak Restoration Program (GORP). Pulling Together supports community groups working within park natural areas by providing start-up training, on-going ecological advice, restoration plan guidance, staff and equipment for selected work parties, plant debris removal, and annual training and recognition events. Occasionally, Saanich volunteers work on private property to control high-priority invasive plant outbreaks.

Dumping in Parks

To learn more about invasive plants and volunteering, please see the Pulling Together Manual located at www.saanichparks.ca

WHY VOLUNTEER? Meet people! Rewarding results! Help the environment! Make a difference in your community! Learn techniques and new ideas! You are needed!

Saanich Tree Appreciation Day 2012

Over the years, yard waste and unwanted garden material have been discarded in many of Saanich Parks. While leaving garden waste to decompose in park natural areas may seem environmentally friendly, many problems arise from this practice, including:

The 19th annual Tree Appreciation Day will be November 4, 2012 from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm.

• attracting undesirable pests such as rats; • increasing fire hazards; • introducing invasive species that negatively affect sensitive ecosystems; • the disheartening impact on hard working volunteers and staff who restore these park areas; • smothering existing native plants and suffocating tree roots; • introducing fertilizers and pesticides which can be harmful; • creating hazards for children or volunteers at work or play within parks; • creating unsightly debris piles which can lower bordering property values; • attracting more dumping

Please contact Saanich Parks if you have any questions regarding Tree Appreciation Day events or visit www.saanichparks.ca for updates on Tree Appreciation Day. Volunteers are asked to dress appropriately for any weather event as Tree Appreciation Day will proceed regardless of the weather. A limited amount of shovels will be provided, volunteers are asked to bring along their own planting tools and gloves if possible. Refreshments and light snacks will be provided.

Dumping of any materials in parks also contravenes our Park Management and Control Bylaw (7753) The District of Saanich provides a yard waste disposal facility at 1040 McKenzie Avenue for all residents to use free of charge. Materials collected at this facility are taken off site, composted and turned into soil amendment. Please bring all your yard and garden waste to this facility and help us keep our parks and natural areas clean and free of invasive species. Parks and natural areas offer many benefits to us all. Saanich staff and experienced volunteers are actively removing invasive species and restoring park natural areas. To find out more about what you can do to help protect and enhance our park natural areas or to become involved in Saanich’s Pulling Together Volunteer Program please call us at 250-475-5522 or email parks@saanich.ca
