Yarra trail nature walk

Learn about the beautiful riverside biodiversity along the Yarra as part of Stonnington’s participation in the 2021 City Nature Challenge on this guided morning walk with the Yarra Riverkeeper Association.
This walk will be led by Lachy Peace and Andrew Wood from the Yarra Riverkeeper Association's (YRKA), together with local Stonnington bird expert Liz Hackett. The YRKA is an independent, community-led organisation of advocates who represent and protect Melbourne’s iconic Yarra River. 

During the walk, participants will be guided on how to use the iNaturalist app to record observations of plant species or wildlife they see along the Yarra to cotnribute to the 2021 City Nature Challenge (participants should download the app before the event). Learn more about how to use the app by attending our free online iNaturalist training session on 20 April with ecologist Dr. Luis Mata.
