We are holding an information session at Pick Swamp Ramsar Wetland, this National Threatened Species Day. Join us this September as we take a walk in the Ramsar Wetland which harbors over 60 threatened species!

The session will begin in the Old Shearing shed where you can learn about our upcoming projects and how to become involved. Staff from the Dept. Environment Water and Natural Resources will then share the vast history of the site and how it was transformed from a once grazed paddock to an Ramsar wetland, abundant with wildlife. Followed by a short walk to the adjacent grasslands, to see the results of our volunteer's recent weed control, to remove invasive Coast Wattle. We will then wander down to the wetland edge and follow the walking tracks and conduct a group fauna survey. Remember your camera and binoculars and enjoy a walk around the wetland complex, try and spot the rare Australasian Bittern, a pair of breeding Brolgas and listen for the Southern Bell Frog.

This is a great chance to meet others who share your interests in volunteering, helping in the community and caring for the environment. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and pick up some extra information to take home with you.

This session is for anyone who is interested in the activities of Conservation Volunteers, so please come and meet us and find out more about volunteering on our future projects, with opportunities to join teams locally, around Australia and overseas. The session will last for about 3hrs. Opportunities to meet on site at, 10:00am or travel with CV/DEWNR staff departing Mt Gambier 9:00am. Please contact Mt Gambier Office 0428364708
