Earth Day is coming up and there are enough reasons in the world why we should celebrate it. Some of us celebrate every day. Others may be happy to do something special to mark this particular day. If you are looking for such an event, then Brisbane City Council is offering one up which is open to adults only.
The event is a guided walk with some of the Council's Environment Centre Staff on the evening of Earth Day, Friday the 21st of April 2017 from 5.45 pm to 7.15 pm in Mt Coot-tha Forest, to see and hear some of the night time activity on the Hovea track. The walk is approx 2 kms and is over some hills and muddy tracks, so you are asked to wear enclosed shoes and long sleeves and pants. Bring along a hand held torch (no head lamps), drinking water and a snack. There is free parking and toilets nearby but there will be no stops during the walk and everyone is encouraged to stay together for the whole duration.
Should you wish to participate then please book your place by phoning Council's Contact Centre on 07 3403 8888.
Bookings open Wednesday 1 March 2017. Bookings close 11.59pm on Wednesday 19 April 2017.
