Connecting with Nature Walk

Sat, 21 October 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free - 10$

Guided walk along the Bingi Dreaming Track

with Wendy Jones & Gillian Young

Saturday 21 October 2017 | 9am – 12noon
Bingi Dreaming Track

It’s a perfect time of the year to explore the Bingi Dreaming Track as you connect and observe nature, while you learn the names of local plants along the way.

Join Wendy and Gillian on this exploratory walk as they guide you through some beautiful natural bush land and focus on some of the gorgeous local flora, to identify and name some of the local plants found along the Bingie Dreaming Track. You will see local species of eucalypts, shrubs and ground covers.

This walk is perfect for all levels as it is graded easy, with some uneven/rough ground. And when you look up from the ground, you will see some of the spectacular coastal views.

Meet: Eurobodalla National Park Entrance to the Bingie Dreaming Track – south side of Congo Village. See red pin.

Cost:
Free to members, $10 non-members

Bring: Food and water, wear sturdy footwear, hat, sunscreen and tick repellent.

RSVP: Book your place below in the ticket section.
