Discovering Hiltons Biodiversity

Join us at the Hilton Station for a walk along the old train tracks to discover what plants and animals call the tracks home.

                                Over the years to old rail has been reclaimed by nature and now serves as a corridor and safe haven for many species. Before we start    

                                hacking and clearing all the alien vegetation for our ‘Rail Trail’, it would be smart to find out what creatures live in this green space as it will

                                guide the methods we use to clear and what areas we should try to preserve.
