WED Fest - Old places, new action – a trip in time on Bribie Island and Pumicestone Passage to preserve ancient culture and species
The magnificent Ramsar-listed Pumicestone Passage and Bribie Island are always glorious in winter, and this trip will be even more spectacular as seen through the perspective of First Nations cultural landscape management along with the positive stories of collaborative marine and foreshore restoration.
You can join the bus from Nambour or meet at Bribie Island to visit the Woorim Foreshore Rehabilitation project with BIEPA, Barung Landcare, Moreton Bay Regional Council and Healthy Land and Water, then travel to board The Ferryman for a memorable boat trip with Traditional Owners, archaeologist, fire ecologist, botanist and shorebird experts up the Passage to discuss the Pumicestone Shellfish Habitat Restoration, midden mapping, shorebirds and cultural landscape management.
At a very modest $25 each with lunch on board the boat, you can’t miss this opportunity!
