ECO adventurers can learn about the plants and wildlife of Tinchi Tamba Wetlands in Bald Hills this Sunday, August 20 from 8-10am.

The Tracking Local Bush Kangaroos event is being hosted by Keep Sandgate Beautiful Association.

In the late 1990s a mob of more than 50 eastern grey kangaroos, led by a strikingly large buck, swum the Pine Rivers and took up residence in the Tinchi Tamba Wetlands after bushland at North Lakes was cleared for housing.

Since then the kangaroos have flourished in this area while those in North Lakes have decreased.

People are encouraged to bring their children along to this informative walk with local environmental enthusiasts, and find out more about the native animals, plants and aboriginal heritage in this beautiful area.

Bring covered shoes, a drink bottle, a snack, sunscreen, hat and insect repellent. The adventure is suitable for all ages.

The event is free for Keep Sandgate Beautiful Association (KSBA) members. If you are not a KSBA member, you are welcome to come along and try the walk.

Participants should meet at the Tinchi Tamba picnic and public toilet at 8am.

For more information phone Ian on 0427 772 919 or Lenore on 0410 429 479.
