Whitefriars Twilight Bushwalk

A group of enthusiastic students, staff and parents wandered along the College wetlands and bushland track in search of frogs, a pair of powerful owls, possums and other local species. David DeAngelis, an Old Collegian and consultant ecologist explained the different frog calls being heard and managed to find a brown tree frog in the wetlands edge lomandra grass. The Powerful Owl was elusive, along with a few other species, but the group enjoyed spot lighting the mana gums and messmate eucalyptus trees. An eel was observed in the creek and evidence of a sugar glider eating the wattles trees noted. The Sustainability and Environment Team would like to thank the group for attending the Twilight Bushwalk on a cool night. A big thank you to David DeAngelis for his continued support of the environmental events and programs at the College.
