Life In Our Cemeteries - BERMAGUI

Last Saturday we partnered with Atlas of Life for the third event in the Life in our Cemeteries citizen science program.

A crowd of more than 60 people joined for a day of exploring the unique flora, fauna and history of the Bermagui cemetery.

Participants explored the Bangalay sand forest vegetation surrounding the cemetery, identifying and photographing the flora with botanist, Jackie Miles and the fauna with National Parks and Wildlife Threatened Species Officer, Andrew Morrison.

Fiona Firth showed participants how to ‘read a cemetery’ and unlock fascinating local stories by reading headstones and by decoding some of the discovered symbology.

We also had Rebecca Rudd from Beauty Point Landcare share invaluable tips for setting up a successful Landcare group and shared her learnings for accessing assistance in your Landcare group.

We are delighted with the success of the Bermagui event and excited for the next in the Life in our Cemeteries series, with details to come later in the year.
