@ Felltimber Creek

THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED. To register on the wait list please email: g4wildlifeaw@gmail.com

Join Parklands Ranger, Danny Jones, for a night adventure spotlighting for nocturnal native wildlife along Felltimber Creek, with kids invited to a Squirrel Glider activity before spotlighting commences.

Children will create a paper Squirrel Glider and glide it to the safety of a ‘tree hollow’, while Leanne Smith from Eco-Inquire explains their diet, habitat threats, gliding ability and the management actions that can be taken to conserve this iconic species.

Squirrel Gliders, a native gliding possum, are endangered in Victoria, but are known to inhabit the Felltimber area.  Parklands, Wodonga Council, Wodonga Urban Landcare Network and Friends of Felltimber Creek have been working with the community restoring the native plants to the area in recent years to support native species, including the addition of nest boxes. During a recent check of the boxes, two contained Squirrel Gliders.

Please wear warm clothes and closed shoes and bring a personal torch. Parklands will bring the spotlight. Please remember to stay with the Ranger and try not to scare the wildlife during the walk.

When: Monday 24 September 2018 – spotlighting 6.30-8.30pm, children’s activity 5.45-6.30pm.

Where: Meet eastern end of Lambourn Drive and follow the signs.

RSVP: Places are limited. Please book by Friday 21st September via our Eventbrite listing here: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/spotlighting-and-kids-squirrel-glider-activity-felltimber-creek-tickets-50044801348?aff=ebdssbdestsearch
