The Micalong Swamp Flora Reserve is one of the two Wetlands of National Importance in the Canberra region. (The other is Yaouk Swamp). On this visit we will combine birding, botany and bushwalking.

Micalong Swamp is some 80 km west of Canberra.  We shall go in and return via the quite rough Brindabella Road, so it will be best if we use 4WD/SUV-type vehicles. We will do a 12 km loop walk around the Swamp, observing the birds that use the Swamp and its margins.

As this will be a full day trip, please bring morning tea, lunch and water. There are no toilets at the venue. Rendezvous for carpooling in the carpark of the Stromlo Forest Park at 7:00 am. Suggested contribution from each passenger to drivers: $15.

Registration is essential. Numbers are limited to four vehicles, 16 people max.  For further information and to register please contact the trip leader, David Dedenczuk, at phone 6295 6065 or 0417 222 154, or email ddedentz@bigpond.net.au by Thursday 22 February 2018.
