This year ECNT invites you to join us for some bushwalks in beautiful places around the Top End. These experiences are about enjoying yourself, getting to know the landscapes and learning about their natural heritage. We’ll also discuss how we can respond to various threats to animals and plants in these places.
We have three trips in 2020, ranging from the easy and short to the more adventurous and challenging - as suits your ability or inclination. Each trip will be organised and led by Andy Peart, an experienced bushwalking tour guide, accompanied by local ecologist Dave Liddle and other experts where available.
Note that our trips are not tours, but private excursions which you’re welcome to participate in. In return we ask that you make a minimum donation, which will be used to help ECNT to continue and improve the work we do. Our Centre receives no funding from government for our work in environmental advocacy across a huge geographical area, so we depend on donations to keep going. No part of your donation will go into trip costs, as these will be covered by our volunteers.
Spaces are limited (8 donors for each trip) so if you’re keen, express your interest ASAP and someone will phone you back. We hope you can join us!
