Eco-Annandale 2010

October Eco-Artists' Walk- 10 October 2009 Walk

There was a light breeze and the rain abated for the third eco-annandale 2010 walk. The walk featured the Whites Creek Wildlife Corridor and Wetlands and along the way we admired a NSW Christmas Bush in a garden and the historic Aqueduct. There was also an impromptu visit to the Community Garden, a chat at Arthur's Rose Garden and a discussion at the Nissen Hut.
