This is a 2-hour guided walk through a Kangaroo Island revegetation site with an interpretive tour of native plants, the island icon Glossy Black-Cockatoo’s habitat and an integrated pest management demonstration site. Along the way, we will show you how native oyster reefs are being restored, how 4G cameras and other technologies contribute to the conservation of KI wildlife such as dunnarts, bandicoots and echidnas. At the end of the tour, our artist-in-residence Michele Lane will hold a live art session - she will work her etching magic, which articulates at the intersection of nature and art, right in front of your eyes!
Free entry. Event starts at 10:30am and will last for 2 hours. Suitable for families and nature lovers. Refreshments will be provided.
The entrance to Lanes' Revegetation is on American River Road about 400 meters back from the intersection with Hog Bay Road.
