Wetland discovery tour

25 March 2017

Start time: 09.00AM

Join us as we explore a secion of Blacktown creek, learn about the species that live there, and what we can do to protect our local waterways.

Across Blacktown City we have 22 major creeks and numerous smaller tributaries that provide natural drainage and habitat for wildlife. These local waterways traverse over 250 kilometers through our suburbs, and vary in type from concrete channels, through to constructed wetlands and natural waterways.


Our local waterways are home to over 300 species of native wildlife and endangered plants. Given they are located downhill from everything, they are easily susceptible to pollution caused by littered rubbish, illegal dumping, and runoff from gutters, roads and gardens.

Join us for this waterway discovery tour at Mitchell Reserve in Blacktown. We will identify the many species of birds that visit the wetland, discover some of the creatures that live below the surface of the water that can be indicators for water quality, and learn about the engineered solutions that help keep our waterways clean and healthy. This family friendly event is free to attend, but places are limited so register now.
