CLARENCE Valley residents have been invited to explore the coastal region around Angourie to celebrate World Wetlands Day.
On February 2, WetlandCare Australia will host a free community walk around the coastline of Angourie, looking at the fascinating ecology of the intertidal rocky shoreline.
World Wetlands Day is an international event that celebrates the anniversary of the signing of the Ramsar convention in 1971.
The theme of the day for 2010 is wetlands, biodiversity and climate change.
“Rocky shorelines are some of the harshest, yet most biologically diverse environments in Australia,” project officer with WetlandCare Australia, Simone Haigh said.
“This free community walk will be a great opportunity for people of all ages to learn more about these fascinating environments, as well as issues relating to wetlands and climate change.”
To take part in the walk, meet at the car park at the end of Picnic Street in Angourie.
Bring shoes, sunscreen, water and a hat.
For enquiries or to register call Simone at WetlandCare Australia on 6681 6169 or email firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 1.
