Description

Join Ben Simon on a Spring Walk through Kyeema Conservation Park.

Spring is a beautiful time to visit Kyeema.

This park has a remarkable history, beginning with mining for alluvial gold in the late 1880s. The Kyeema Prison Camp was then established in 1931, and held approximately 13 prisoners from Yatala, before closing in the mid-1950s. The Park was then completely burnt out in the 1983 Ash Wednesday Fire, and partially burnt out by fires in 1994 and 2001.

The Park is now a haven for marsupials such as the Southern Brown Bandicoot, the Swamp Rat and the Western Grey Kangaroo. It is also home to over 80 bird species, making it a highly attractive destination for bird watchers.

Ben will be sharing his vast knowledge of the plant species that we come across.

A BBQ lunch will be supplied afterwards.

This project is supported by the SA Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resources Management Board through funding from the Australian Government's National Landcare Programme and the NRM Levies.
