Vanessa Freebairn, Limestone Coast Landscape Board Education Co-Ordinator encourages all families to attend this day out in nature. "There are so many wonderful activities on offer at this event. With the ClimateWatch Trail being launched families are encouraged to take a guided tour of the trail and learn how to use the ClimateWatch app to record local species for future visits to the park".

"The trail represents a fantastic means to engage with nature, and observe changes in our local species over time. Nature is fascinating, and the tools developed for the trail will assist with learning more about our amazing local flora," City of Mount Gambier Environmental Sustainability Officer, Aaron Izzard said.

With a free sausage sizzle or the opportunity to bring your own picnic lunch on the day, the Limestone Coast Landscape Board along with City of Mt Gambier are looking forward to providing this free event for the Limestone Coast community to enjoy.
