The wonder of Ballina's wetlands

WetlandCare Australia is conducting wetland walks in Ballina on January 31 to celebrate World Wetlands Day 2010.

People are asked to meet at the Chickiba soccer oval (Chickiba Dr, East Ballina) at 9am where you will join WetlandCare Australia officer Garry Owers for a wetland interpretive tour.

Find out about the amazing flora and fauna, biodiversity, and have your wetland questions answered. These walks are aimed at improving enjoyment and understanding of wetlands in the community. It’s a one to two-hour interesting tour, free for both children and adults. Stay and enjoy the environment with morning tea afterwards.

People should wear sturdy shoes and bring sun protection and cameras or binoculars if they wish. For more information phone Garry on 66816169 or email garryowers@
