Last Friday and Saturday, Government and community groups came together to organise 2 fantastic events to celebrate World Wetlands Day. Saturday saw the Lakes Hub host free bus & paddle steamer tours on board the Oscar ‘W’ from Goolwa to Clayton Bay where a Family Fun Day was organised in the Clayton Bay Community Hall attended by more than 100 people.
FishWatch volunteers were on hand to educate the kids about native fish with a ‘fishing game’, and NRM Education staff put up a fantastic wetland tunnel and macro-invertebrate displays showing children the creatures that live in our wetlands, and what we can all do to help keep our wetlands clean and healthy. A tour to the Milang Turtle Shed and information on local wetlands was also enjoyed. The Clayton Nursery was open for tours, live frog and snake displays amused the kids, and everyone enjoyed a delicious lunch of Coorong Mullet provided by the Clayton Bay Nursery & Environment Group.
