You know that part of the paddock that goes under water certain times of the year. Or that boggy patch that has different plants growing in it?

Come and find out more about Monaro lakes and the values that these kinds of wetlands have - for you and the environment.

In the morning we will Explore Maffra Lake TSR and find out what plants are growing at Maffra TSR, why the Monaro has amazing ephemeral wetlands, and what plants and animals rely on these environments in our landscape.
