Join local artist Julia Reader at Mt Burr Swamp Restoration Reserve for a watercolour workshop drawing inspiration from flora and fauna found on the property. Enjoy a glass of Slow Lane wine while taking in the views and hear about the previous restoration work and current ‘Recharge Farm project’ Nature Glenelg Trust are undertaking on the property.
Mt Burr Swamp Restoration Reserve was purchases by Nature Glenelg Trust with a partnership between the Native Vegetation Council, and OneFortyOne Plantation and with the help of the local community to raise the remaining funds. Mt Burr Swamp is providing a rare demonstration of what sustainable water management, threatened species recovery and large-scale native revegetation actually look like on the ground, while providing an opportunity for the community to get involved and enjoy nature.
The reserve provides the opportunity to restore habitat for six nationally threatened species; Little (formerly Dwarf) Galaxias (fish), Growling Grass Frog, Australasian Bittern, Southern Brown Bandicoot, Red-tailed Black Cockatoo and Southern Bent-wing Bat, as well as a range of other important or iconic species, such as the Brolga which we may be lucky enough to see on the day
The Recharge Farms project, supported by the Limestone Coast Landscape Board, through funding from the South Australian Government’s Landscape Priorities Fund and the Australian Government’s National Water Grid Connections Funding Pathway.
