Beautiful Walks are back! As the new Community Outreach Officer, I’m excited to invite you to the first Beautiful Walk for 2018. It will be held at the Kommo Toera Trail, which winds through a paperbark wetland and is an area full of diverse plant and wildlife species. Guest speakers will also be on hand to talk about the importance and ecology of the area.
Where: Kommo Toera Trail. Keeleys Rd, Slade Point
When: Sunday 20 May, 3pm - 5pm
The Beautiful Walks program has been running for 4 years and is the Mackay Conservation Group’s most popular event. The walks are held in natural locations around Mackay and highlight the environmental beauty of the region. The event is held monthly, open to the public and free to attend.
Originally from south-west WA, I became passionate about the environment as a kid. I loved being in nature, whether it was exploring the bush or playing in the ocean. As I became more aware of issues such as land clearing, threatened species and climate change, I wanted to do my part in creating a social change and keeping our planet healthy for the future.
I moved to Darwin where I completed my Bachelor of Environmental Science and worked with the Australian Marine Conservation Society. I’ve recently moved to Mackay and look forward to raising awareness about the beauty of the Mackay region and to conserve it for generations to come!
