Listen to the sounds of rosellas, and immerse yourself in the grassy meadows, woodlands, and sandy beach at Lysterfield Lake Park.
The Sensing Nature Program is excited to be partnering with Emma Swann, a Forest therapy guide, and BSRV volunteer co-guides who are vision impaired or blind. Our co-guides will be sharing various ways that we can engage with nature using our non visual senses. They will share their love of nature, and their varied interests with the group while Emma will be leading the walk.
