All across the state local communities will host and hold picnics – coming together to celebrate nature and highlight the plight of our planet.

Econetwork Port Stephens and the Mambo Wetlands Conservation Group are inviting all residents to join them at their Picnic For Nature at 109 Foreshore Drive, Salamander Bay from 11am – 2pm.

Enjoy nature, music and a BBQ as the community celebrates nature.

This is a BYO event – bring your own signs and placards and be a force for nature.

While you are at it you will need to pack your own chairs, rugs, and drinks.

The Nature Conservation Council says, “It’s more than just a fun day of getting outside with your family.

“It’s an opportunity to celebrate the natural beauty and biodiversity of your local area and a chance to connect with your local community.”

Each picnic will be hosted by a local group or community alliance, and so will be unique to your area.

Some will have music, games for the kids, local stalls or even community clean ups!

If you are interested in hosting a Picnic For Nature in the future visit 109 Foreshore Drive and connect with the locals who are fighting to save this community space.

109 Foreshore Drive is adjacent to Mambo Wanda Wetlands and is home to threatened and endangered species.

Port Stephens Councillor Leah Anderson told News Of The Area, “It is great to see our community joining with the Nature Conservation Council to appreciate all that our environment has to offer.

“Events like this highlight the importance of protecting our natural assets.”
