Saturday the 6th. Such a great day was had by all.

Just a few images from the Day.  

We began with Jamarri Bird Sanctuary and the wonderful Dee Patterson.

She told us many wonderful stories about the birds but also the tragedy that forest logging brings to their lives!!

We walked into the forest and played, photographed, drew and made installations:

We used the ‘environmental message string’ made recently by the Bunbury community  for the ‘Transplanting Disobedience’ Exhibition at the Bunbury Regional Art Galleries to create a ‘home’, ‘a connection’ and a place of contemplation in the forest.
