The annual Red Hill Regenerators twilight walk was held on Tuesday 14 December 2021 on a perfect warm, still evening, starting from the Red Hill restaurant at 5.30pm. The 90 minute walk attracted over 30 enthusiastic participants who were absorbed by the fascinating discourse on a wide variety of Red Hill’s unique geology, history, flora and fauna. Red Hill Regenerators expert Dr Michael Mulvaney led the group deep into the bush while explaining the hill’s 400 million year history, how to differentiate between its magnificent Yellow Box and Red Gum eucalypts, why ants like climbing trees, and how to tell where the resident kangaroos like to relax. As the walk finished, a brilliant rainbow could be seen as a few drops of cooling rain fell. Thanks to Michael, and watch out for the next guided walk on Red Hill!
The Regenerators held their final activity of the year on 5 December 2021, combined with their AGM. In spite of Covid inconveniences, the year was productive, with awards, tree planting, weed removal and much success in grant applications. More…
