Join us for a walk around Warriewood Wetlands with local ecologist Jayden Walsh! Perfect for families, this activity will involve a guided walk and a pitstop for morning tea with plenty of sights along the way to keep kids (and adults!) entertained.
Warriewood Wetlands is an extremely special place, being the largest Freshwater Sand Plain Wetland remaining in Sydney. Thanks to the hard work and vision of a few dedicated individuals, part of the original Wetland is protected forever amongst a growing sea of development. This crucial habitat that protects 3 Ecologically Endangered Vegetation Communities has over 250 Fauna species recorded in a mere 26 Hectares! A phenomenal biodiversity scorecard for anywhere in Australia. Whilst it faces no shortage of threats, over 40 Threatened Species have been recorded at Warriewood Wetlands including Swift Parrot, Black Bittern, Large-footed Myotis and Koala.
This walk will teach you all about the Ecology of the Warriewood Valley and give you the opportunity to see its diverse Residents. Jayden has spent thousands of hours exploring this area and can’t wait to share some of its stories with you!

This event is also part of the ACF's Platy-Project where we invite locals to record where platypuses live so researchers can understand more about this incredible creature, and help prevent further declines in their numbers. There's been a platypus sighting before at Warriewood Wetlands so we might get lucky again!
