Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th December: Red Gum health assessments at Walker Swamp

At Walker Swamp we monitor 100 Red Gums annually to keep track of their condition and health over time. Come along and learn how to identify each particular tree, as well as how to assess and record its condition. Once our volunteers feel confident with the method, we hope to expand this program into other nearby reserves.

To find out more and RSVP (note: you can register for one day only if you prefer), please contact our Southern Grampians volunteer coordinator Lisa: .
