Get wet at Baldwin Swamp
BUNDABERG residents will be soaked with knowledge at World Wetlands Day celebrations tomorrow.
WetlandCare Australia and the Burnett Mary Regional Group are holding a free Community Wetland morning at Baldwin Swamp.
The fun will begin at 6am with a live broadcast from ABC and plenty of environmental talks.
WetlandCare Australia officer Rachael Nasplezes will lead a wetland interpretive tour giving information on flora, fauna and biodiversity.
To enhance the experience, a Bundaberg Bird Observers Club experienced bird watcher will be joining in to identify to walkers some of the unique bird life that utilise the wetlands as a source of food and shelter.
Bundaberg Regional Council will also provide a barbecue breakfast for all registered attendees.
There will be visits from Oceanwatch’s Michelle Haase to discuss the Baldwin Swamp fish passageway and from the Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries’ Chris Lupton to share information on Bundaberg’s native freshwater and saltwater fish species and the introduced pests people should beware of.
The Burnett Mary Regional Group will be on hand with activities and plenty of information for landholders on the many NRM incentive programs available.
