Landcare Digital Education Session Next Week: Mid Lachlan Landcare are offering a Zoom session on ‘animals of Box Gum Grassy Woodlands’.
From the comfort of your own home join Australian Wildlife Displays for a live experience of these animals up close.
The ranger will have a number of animals to show us such as the Shingleback Liz-ard and Murray Darling Python. There will be time for questions and finding out more about what habitat requirements they need to survive and thrive.
Those wishing to attend must RSVP via the trybooking event. Head to the Mid Lachlan Landcare Facebook page for a link.
The meeting is to be on next Thursday from 6:30pm to 7:30pm, with the meeting link emailed out on Wednesday.
