Walks Calendar for Spring 2018

The National Parks Association of NSW runs the largest activities program in the state, with over 1,000 bushwalks led by an extraordinary team of knowledgeable and skilled volunteer leaders every year.

 

At the Lachlan Valley Branch, a Spring program of walks has been developed to cater for the average fitness level, with two additional walks for the intrepid bush walker.

 

Moorillah Creek and property boundary – Sunday 26 August.  Meet at Moorillah homestead at 9:30am. This is a 3km walk graded as Medium. Leader will be Peter Cannon. Contact 6866 1225.

 

All walks are subject to there being no adverse Rural Fire Service fire warnings at the time and no closure of the relevant State Forest due to hunting permits etc.

 

Walkers are reminded to bring along enough food and water for the entire day as well as suitable clothing, footwear, hat and sunscreen. A pair of good binoculars and a fold up chair is recommended.

 

Please contact the listed walk leader the night before the walk if you intend to take part. A $2 donation for each walker is appreciated.
