A great turn out for the Mallacoota Bush Blitz Community Day

Over 150 people converged on the small seaside town of Mallacoota in east Gippsland last Sunday for the Bush Blitz Community Day. Budding naturalists of all ages enjoyed learning about the terrestrial and marine life that inhabits this wonderful little corner of Victoria. Scientists from the Museum Victoria, and University of NSW, along with staff from Parks Australia and traditional owners showcased a dazzling display of live creatures, handwoven items made from local sedge and amazing film and photography. Visitors also had the chance to try their hand at collecting their own bugs and making native bee hotels to take home.
