Yesterday we went on an excursion to Mt Rothwell Biodiversity Interpretation Centre. Here we learnt how to weed cape weeds with garden forks. We had a great opportunity to complete the following activities:
- First, half of the grade went hiking up the actual Mt Rothwell to look for rock wallabies. We successfully saw some.
- When we reached the top of Mt Rothwell we found the garden forks at leaning against some rocks, so Richard taught us how to weed with the forks and soon enough a lot of cape weeds were gone.
- After our hiking trip up Mt Rothwell we came back down and started a new activity. The new activity we did was art with Sue Anderson where we looked at something like a leaf or stick and drew it but we had to put all the little details in.
- After we did the art our guides showed us some bones feathers and skins of animals and they said that we needed to go on a little walk around the area and find some scats, tracks and bones etc. My group found a lot of bones.
- After we had dinner we went on the night walk. We saw 3 Rufous Bettongs, 2 Eastern Barred Bandicoots, a southern brown bandicoot, a long nosed potoroo, a masked owl and a Eastern Quoll.
