A CONTEXT OF SUSTAINABILITY
The Nature Conservation Council, the peak environment organisation in New South Wales, has invited interested individuals and community groups to get involved in the Festival of Nature, a program of nature-based activities to be held across the state in September.
As part of our contribution to the Festival of Nature, we are celebrating nature at the Sportsmans Creek Conservation Area, a 50 hectare wildlife refuge owned by Jeff Keyes. The property is named Urimberra, which means 'to protect, to look after', and is located at Dilkoon on the Summerland Way, 20.6 km north from the Blue Goose Inn at Junction Hill.
This event will involve
- exploring nature through guided walks (short and longer)
- thinking nature through talks and exhibitions
- experiencing sustainability through illustrations and discussions
Dr Greg Clancy and Jeff Keyes will lead the activities.
The celebration, from 9.30 a.m. onwards, on Sunday 11 September, is hosted by the National Parks Association (Clarence Valley Branch) and the Clarence Valley Conservation Coalition
