Learn about our local landscape through cultural sessions

Walking the Seasons is a program inspired by the region's First Nations seasonal calendar. The seasonal calendar provides a base to record changes through the year in a specific area of the landscape. After successfully running in schools for the past few years this educational program is now offered to the wider community.

Community members are invited to connect with nature and spend time observing and identifying species in their local landscape.

A walk can take place almost anywhere in your local community. Cultural knowledge and expertise make this unique program an interesting experience for all ages.

Walking the Seasons with the community is a collaborative project delivered by Limestone Coast Landscape Board and Burrandies Aboriginal Corporation.

This project is supported by the Foundation for Regional and Rural Renewal (FRRR), through funding from the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund. The community Walking the Seasons program aims to support the Limestone Coast to be better prepared for drought and dry times by learning more about seasonal changes in our own landscape and understand how First Nations people lived and moved through the landscape. This development of localised knowledge and skills helps to grow community resilience and preparedness through communities walking together in nature.
