Bangalow wetland open day
For the past two years, community groups have been planning the creation of a billabong-like wetland at Bangalow Park, adjacent to the pool.
They include the local Reconnecting to Country working group, members of Bangalow Land and Rivercare Group, various staff and departments of Byron Shire Council and other government agencies, local environmental and technical consultants, traditional Widjabul custodians and students from Southern Cross University.
On Saturday the working group is hosting an open day at the site from 9am to 11am and is inviting all interested people to attend and to meet the people who have been working to make the wetland dream a reality.
Activities will include walks to the wetland site, talks about the project and water quality testing.
Technical plans and documents submitted to the council will be available for viewing.
This project has been made possible through the generosity of a local landholder who is transferring land, which includes the wetland site, into public ownership.
If you would like further information about the open day, or would like to contribute in some way, contact Shannon at Sustainable Futures Australia on 66857198, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Information about the project is available at www.sustainablefutures.com.au
