GYHD! – Gibberagong Track

February 1 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

 

Are you a young person that loves getting outside? Want to get your hands dirty caring for local bushland?

Greater Sydney Landcare Network and NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service are partnering up to host FREE intro Bushcare day and hike.

Join us for a day of removing invasive weeds that are threatening the bushland in western Kur-ring-gai Chase National Park. In the afternoon you’ll be guided along a portion of Gibberagong Track to explore the stunning water holes, cultural heritage, and eucalypt forests near Cockle Creek.

So, if you’ve always been keen to make a difference but weren’t sure where to start, or just want to have a chill day in the bush and meet some like-minded peeps, now’s your chance to get involved.

On-site training, PPE, lunch, and morning tea are provided.

Please wear long sleeves, long pants, closed sturdy shoes and a hat / sunscreen, and bring at least 2 litres of drinking water.

RSVPS are essential so to avoid disappointment register ASAP. Registrations are via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/gyhd-gibberagong-track-tickets-86886524935

Instructions on location and exact meeting point will be provided to those who have registered. For more information contact Elisha at 4724 2147 or elisha.duxbury@greatersydneylandcare.org.

While this event is primarily to support and encourage young people aged late teens to thirty-something years old, we always invite diversity of demographics. However, for insurance purposes you must be over 13 years and accompanied by an adult if you are under 16.

Please be advised you will need a reasonable level of fitness to attend this project. Some track areas are unstable under foot due to loose rocks.

We acknowledge and pay our respects to the Traditional Custodians of this land.
