Bells Swamp is well known for its beautiful old Red gums, waterbirds and wetland plants. The area in flood again after our higher than average rainfall over the last few months. FOBIF is planning a one-off excursion to the swamp on Saturday 17 December when it will still be flooded. Wetland experts, Damien Cook and Elaine Bayes, authors of a Draft Management Plan (updated December 2015) for Bells Swamp, will be coming along to show us some of the swamp’s ecological features.
We will be meeting at 9.30 at Continuing Ed and travelling in convoy to the area which is half an hour from Castlemaine. Bring some food to share for lunch, and your gumboots! Contact Bronwyn Silver on 54751089 for further information.
