The afternoon will begin at 2.45pm with Listening to Country as Uncle Dennis Foley shares his knowledge about the area including Kierans Creek. People are invited to walk with Uncle Dennis and the St Anthonys Kierans Creek Landcare Group around the revegetation area of the creek riparian zone as they work to heal Country. There will be displays by BushToBowl. This segment is free.
