Have a Wild Night

5 years ago | by

A night-time adventure beckons at the North Coast Botanic Garden with an invite to meet its nocturnal inhabitants on May 25.

NPWS Discovery Rangers will guide you through this fun evening of nocturnal spotlighting in a corner of Coffs that is bounded by Coffs Creek, a wide mangrove- lined, tidal estuary which features natural forest, rare and endangered Australian species and exotic plants from other sub-tropical regions of the world.

With the use of torches and keen listening skills the Rangers will guide you through this fun night as you search for everything from spiders and frogs, to the more elusive gliders and possums. You may even meet a koala – one of Australia’s most iconic and vulnerable species.

This special experience will also provide fascinating insights into the biodiversity values within our own backyard and what we can all do to help protect them.

The walk will take place on Thursday, May 25, from 6.45pm–8.30pm. Participants should bring a small torch and wear enclosed shoes and long trousers. The walk will start from the entrance to the Botanic Garden on Hardacre Street, Coffs Harbour.

The walk is free, but bookings are essential as places are limited. Call 02 6648 4210 to secure your spot.​​
