By the banks of the Bega River, you are invited to sit back and weave, draw or daydream while listening to Dijringanj and Ngarigo elder Aunty Colleen Dixon share stories of her time growing up along the waterway.
Stories of living in camps by the river, walking to school across the old footbridge, her family's work as bean pickers along the river flats, and the importance of the river to the Dijringanj people which have inspired some of her paintings.
Afterwards, Bega River and Wetlands Landcare (BRAWL) will invite you to plant a tree as part of their ongoing work to rehabilitate the river.
This is a free event for all the family and is assisted by the Bega Valley Shire Council Community Grants Program.
Join BRAWL on Sunday, November 22 from 10am-12.30pm at the Bega River main picnic area (bottom of Auckland St, Bega).
Bring sunhats, water bottles, sturdy shoes or gumboots, gardening gloves if you can.
Tools and children's gloves will be provided.
Book via firstname.lastname@example.org or 0408 649 282 so organisers can meet COVID-19 requirements.
