As we descend into winter, we mark the end of our Riparian Walk series for a while. What better way to finish than with a jaunt down a winding section of the Hughes Creek.
The aim of these walks is to become better acquainted with our local waterways, and record some of their standout features along the way.
This walk is long (6km) and of easy to moderate difficulty. There’ll be several creek crossings, so please bring waterproof shoes and dry backup socks. Hiking experience isn’t necessary, but an average level of fitness and mobility will be required.
We’ll meet at the picnic ground near the start of Jeffreys Rd which will serve as our start and end point. From there, we’ll descend down the Hughes Creek before taking a shortcut down the road to the starting point (YAY! no car shuffle).
For anyone interested, an optional excursion upstream to the culturally significant Aboriginal stone carving sight will follow the walk.
Please note, as we’ll be near private property, no dogs or other pets will be allowed.
Time/Date: 8:45am to 1pm, Sunday the 26th of May, 2019
Start/Finish Location: Picnic ground near the start of Jeffreys Rd (GPS Coordinate: -37.001778, 145.332028)
RSVPs are essential, so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
We all know that the Strathbogie Ranges are a remarkable part of Australia without parallel. But what exactly happens when the average person isn’t looking? In the dark, damp, difficult to reach places? Places where only those with a curious mind, steadfast dedication and a formidable grasp of the scientific method dare to explore?
What do those people see, what do they know, and what can they teach us about a place that we feel we know intimately?
With help from the GBCMA, we’ve created Under the Microscope to answer these burning questions and fuel the curious minds in the audience to see the ranges in a new light.
With 8 expert speakers in the diverse fields of Geology, Conservation, Botany, Biodiversity, Ornithology, Ecology and Ichthyology, there will be something for everyone who wants to learn and interact with some of the finest academic minds in their respective fields. Lunch will be provided.
Time/Date: 10am to 3pm, Thursday the 27th of June, 2019
Venue: Euroa Football Club
