Spring BioBlitz Bushwalk
September 10, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Come along on a social bushwalk to enjoy the wonders of Lithgow’s local bushland in spring. Along the way we will document the plants and wildlife that we see, and contribute to citizen science.
We will be walking up to the iconic Bracey Lookout, and getting a taste of the incredible diversity of plants and animals in Hassans Walls Reserve. Participants will get an introduction to citizen science, and learn how to use the iNaturalist app to document biodiversity. People who are already experienced using iNaturalist are also very welcome! Once we get to the top we will enjoy the view and spend some time exploring in the vicinity with our guest insect expert, Sean, and local plant experts Julie and Helen. You will then be welcome to walk back down to the start in your own time.
Morning tea will be provided. Bring your own water bottle.
This is a free event however registration is essential both for catering purposes and to manage safety of the group. A link to book via Humanitix ticketing is included at the end of the description.
Children are welcome, but all children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Note, the walk is a steep grade, with uneven surfaces. It is about 400 metres one way, and we will be taking our time, and then exploring in the vicinity of the lookout once we arrive. For those who would like to participate without the steep walk, there is the option of driving to Bracey Lookout and joining the group there. There are no toilets at Bracey Lookout, but multiple public toilets are available a short drive from the beginning of the walk.
This project is being funded under the Black Summer Bushfire Recovery Grants Program which is an initiative of the Commonwealth Government- National Recovery and Resilience Agency.
