About the event
Come see the Sanctuary after dark and learn more about our local frog species!
You do not need any specialised skills or knowledge. Volunteers will be assigned a voice recorder and will record frog calls at the wetlands. Monitoring amphibian populations (changes and species diversity) can provide valuable information about the health of a wetland and enables us to better plan how to manage this environment.
- We recommend that you bring a mask to wear indoors and when you can not socially distance.
- If you feel unwell, are a close contact, or awaiting test results, please do not attend.
- Participants are no longer required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or check in via the Service Victoria app.
What animals will we see?
We are a true wildlife sanctuary so all animals within the Sanctuary are wild and free to move around; as such, we can not guarantee that you will see any wildlife.
How much walking is there?
This will vary as volunteers will be spread throughout the sanctuary. Let us know if walking long distances is difficult for you. We can place you at a tree near the entrance.
What do I need to bring?
Please dress appropriately for the weather (eg. appropriate footwear, warm clothes and a spray jacket) and pre-apply mosquito repellent. You may also want to bring a chair to sit on.
Do I need a torch?
Only red-light torches are allowed.
Can children attend this event?
We welcome children to explore the Sanctuary with us. However, please be aware that the purpose of this event is to spot wildllife. This will require the group to remain quiet as they stake out under the tree.
What happens if it rains?
Wildlife don't tend to mind a little bit of rain, so the Stagwatch will go ahead even if light showers are expected. We may cancel the tour in extreme weather conditions (eg. high winds or heavy rainfall); we will contact you directly if this occurs.
How can I get in touch with any questions?
If you have any questions, please contact us on (03) 9479 1206 or firstname.lastname@example.org
