Spotlighting for wildlife at Wianamatta Regional Park

August 26 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Enjoy a night walk in Wianamatta Regional Park and spotlight for native animals… great for the family!


Join us for a spotlighting event, and be guided through Wianamatta Regional Park for a chance to see the nocturnal animals that live in the reserve.

This event is a family friendly one, and is being organised as part of the Cumberland Plain Restoration Program.

Artificial hollows and piles of woody debris have been added to the park in the restoration program, in order to provide more habitat for the native wildlife who occupy the area.

This spotlight will wander tracks to the northern parts of Wianamatta, looking for any evidence of animals using the hollows or wood piles, and for any others that may be caught in the spotlight.

Chad Beranek from Gumnut Naturalist, an experienced ecologist, will be leading this activity.

The spotlighting event will last for approx three hours – planned for 5-8pm.

All participants will need to be wearing suitable clothing, including enclosed walking shoes. A raincoat should also be taken incase of wet weather.

A good torch and binoculars would also be great to bring along with you, but can be available to borrow if need be.

RSVP via Eventbrite registration is essential. Details of meeting points will be provided to those who register.

For any questions please contact xuela.sledge@greatersydneylandcare.org

This event has been made possible with the financial assistance of the NSW Environmental Trust and the Saving our Species Program.
