Thursday 11th May 10:00am – 3:00pm

For those of you that were able to join us last year – and for those of you who weren’t – you are invited to a follow up field day at The Grange and Long Point to revisit last year’s restoration sites one year on, and to explore the extent of the new works recently completed in March this year.

Join us (NGT), together with the Tasmanian Land Conservancy and NRM South, to share an overview of these important Moulting Lagoon and Apsley Marshes Ramsar site projects, and in particular the hydrological restoration works at Long Point. We will again start at Yards Hole on The Grange, leaving cars for a hike to explore the TLC’s Long Point Reserve.

To register your interest, please email Bec Sheldon () and the specific details will be provided to you ahead of the day.

We look forward to seeing you out there!

The restoration works implemented by Nature Glenelg Trust have been made possible at Long Point thanks to the support of the Tasmanian Land Conservancy, and at Yards Hole thanks to the support of the private owners of The Grange, as a result of the NRM South project at Moulting Lagoon, with funding provided via the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
