Dibble Avenue Waterhole – a biodiversity hotspot & returned to being one of Marrickville’s really beautiful historic places. There is a microbat box on the pier on the left.

Marrickville Council are holding another free ‘Microbat Walk and Talk’ after a successful event last year.  I participated & can say it was a very enjoyable & informative experience. See – http://bit.ly/1mL83er

The walk starts at the A C Croft Playground & if Council takes the same route, includes a look at the newly re-vegetated Dibble Avenue Waterhole, which is looking quite beautiful these days.  The walk then goes along the Cooks River in the direction of Illawarra Road.

After the sunset walk, a bat specialist & a bat carer will give a free talk about microbats at the Debbie & Abbey Borgia Centre.

MICROBAT WALK –

WHEN: Wednesday 16th April 2014.

TIME:  5pm – 6.30pm

WHERE:  Meet at the A C Croft playground, Dibble Avenue Marrickville.    Note: Council asks that participants wear suitable walking shoes & clothing as the walking track is uneven & unpaved.   They also ask that you bring a torch or headlight.
