Minimal Impact Training Walk in English and Mandarin

1 July 2018 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm


A great opportunity for those who love nature and want to continue to enjoy it in less harmful ways!

Minimal Impact Bushwalking helps to preserve nature and biosecurity in our pristine Australian habitats.

This one-day training course will help you to ‘walk softly’ and leave a minimal impact as well as know the best safety preparations to make before you head out.

Join Yidan and David for their Lane Cove National Park walk alongside the river. Yidan and David will lead the walk in English and Mandarin!

Starting at Koonjerie Picnic Area and following the river to Macquarie Centre.
Beautiful walk along side the river! Learn about minimal impact bushwalking tips and tricks as we walk along the track.
