A Walk back in time to Winter Swamp

As part of Springfest activities, the Cardigan Landcare Group organised a walk back in time through the series of wetlands from Lake Wendouree to Winter Swamp to explain how they operate, interact and support the local ecology. 

22 people enjoyed some brisk Ballarat weather for a walk through what was the old Ballarat Common to visit the various wetlands.
