As part of our 10th anniversary celebrations Nature Glenelg Trust is inviting friends and supporters to join us on a bus tour of the Fleurieu Peninsula. During this tour we will drop by a number of sites where NGT has been working with partners to restore wetland habitat, monitor key species or breed threatened species for translocation back into the wild. This includes:
– the Washpool at Sellicks Beach, one of the only intact coastal lagoons remaining in the Adelaide region and where NGT has been developing restoration plans in collaboration with the Kaurna traditional custodians and local community members;
– Yundi Nature Conservancy, an example of a critically endangered Fleurieu Peninsula Swamp where NGT have been assisting a private landholder with restoration planning and works;
– a Ngarrindjeri midden site on Sir Richard Peninsula, Goolwa, where we will hear from traditional custodian Kyla McHughes and Aquasave-NGT will explain our Goolwa Cockle monitoring program;
– Aquasave-NGT’s breeding facility for the nationally vulnerable Southern Bell Frog at Clayton.
Your tour guides will be NGT Managing Director and Founder Mark Bachmann, Senior Wetland Ecologist Ben Taylor and Ecological Programs Manager Melissa Herpich. We will also meet Aquasave-NGT staff members Sylvia Zukowski (Senior Aquatic Ecologist), Rupert Mathwin (Amphibian Ecologist) and Regina Durbridge (Southern Bell Frog Facility Coordinator) along the way, as well as several of our project partners.
The day begins at 7.15 am when we will board the tour bus at Frederick St Unley, at the northern end of Unley Oval (departing by 7.30 sharp). We return to Frederick St by 5.00 pm. The tour is catered and includes morning tea at Yundi and lunch at Goolwa barrage.
To help cover costs tickets are $50. You can book your seats on the bus be clicking here. Seats are limited so don’t leave it to the last minute!
