A fun social evening out learning how to set up motion-sensing wildlife cameras and some general spotlighting skills - all around a meal at Gosling Creek Reserve / Bloomfield Park Orange. What a great way to welcome in our 2018 program of activities.

When:  Friday 16th February from 5pm to 9:30pm

Where: Please meet at the carpark on Bargwana Road, off Bloomfield Road, Gosling Creek Reserve, Orange

What we will be doing:

  • Learning some basic skills about setting up a motion-sensing wildlife camera with some fun activities around the park. Interested participants can register to borrow a wildlife camera to record wildlife at your place
  • Tea at the park - a great chance to socialise and share stories of what wildlife you have seen locally
  • A spotlighting walk through Bloomfield Park - follow the sealed pathway along Gosling Creek towards Huntley Road. We will go over spotlighting techniques and equipment and hopefully, we will see some resident wildlife.

What to bring / wear:

  • Please make sure you wear sturdy footwear and suitable clothing
  • Bring a small torch if you have one to help with your navigation along the path
  • Insect repellant - there may be biting insects out
  • Children are welcome, as long as they are with a parent or other adult
