Come along and join us! Workshop series continues with upcoming Boandik cultural event at Hutt Bay

We’re very excited about the next event in our workshop series centred around Hutt Bay: this time we’ll be learning about the area’s Boandik cultural heritage with Aunty Michelle Jacquelin-Furr.

Back in 2018 we worked with Aunty Michelle in ForestrySA’s biodiversity schools program in which she ran a number of fun sessions with Newbery Park Primary School. This time round we’re doing a session with the local home school network, followed by a public event – and you’re invited!

The event will take place at NGT’s Hutt Bay Reserve, near Port MacDonnell, SA, in the afternoon of Friday 11 March.

Aunty Michelle will discuss the children’s books she has authored inspired by her great-grandmother, Boandik way of life, and Bunganditj language. Please get in touch to register your interest as soon as possible as places are limited. Further details will be sent out to registrants via email.

And if this sounds like your cup of tea, you may also enjoy the video below! The Mount Gambier City Council recently announced the implementation of dual naming and in the video Aunty Michelle demonstrates the pronunciation of a number of city landmarks. Give it a go!

The Hutt Bay Wetland Reserve workshop and working bees project is supported by the Coast Protection Board through the Coastal Community Participation Grant.
