Annual Lyrebird Count – Sunday July 7

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Dawn over Mt Worth 29th of June, could be the sort of thing you could enjoy at the Friends Annual Lyrebird count coming up. We will start at the Moonlight Creek Picnic area at 6.45 and then survey Lyrebird calls as dawn rises. Bring very warm gear, a torch and a compass (if you have one). Using a “triangulation” technique we are able to identify individual birds to compare with numbers in previous years. We recorded a small increase between our first count in 2017 and the second in 2018, and hope that we will get a similar result this year. Contact us through the “contact” page on our website or message through Facebook if you would like to join us.

What last year’s Mt Worth trail runners said…

“It was really enjoyable and the volunteers were were amazing!”

A challenging but enjoyable experience through a patch of remnant Wet Forest”

I loved it, and you will if you love nature, fresh crisp air, exercise and nice people.”

Great course. Friendly vollies and crew. Well marked course”

A super challenging but really well organised trail run in a magnificent forest park.”

Boutique event, local community group working for the good of the park and introducing others to the park and the area. A safe well organised event”

The most organised and prepared trail run I’ve ever done.”

As a must do event. Although as mentioned by someone that it would be a good entry level for trail running, I would disagree. The steepness of the hills wasn’t entry level.”

A small local, friendly event on some beautiful trails.”
