Did you know Crace has several significant Aboriginal sites, including three scar trees and a traditional ochre collecting ground? Artefacts show that this area has been the location of Aboriginal camping activities for at least 5000 years.
Crace is also an area of ecological importance. You may have seen or heard the many birds, kangaroos, frogs and reptiles that call Crace home, or admired the native plants and trees in our local parks and reserves.
Together the members of the new Crace Landcare group are helping protect the local environment by hosting working bees and taking part in conservation projects.
Help us celebrate the launch of Crace Landcare, with a BBQ breakfast at the Crace Community Garden on Sunday 23 November.
After the launch, join us on an interpretive walk around Crace with Ngunawal man Wally Bell as he shares some knowledge and insight into the significance of this area. Where: Crace Community Garden, Langtree Crescent When: Sunday 23 November 8am – 9am: Crace Landcare launch and BBQ breakfast (by gold coin donation to the Landcare group) 9am – 11am: Indigenous Heritage Walk (departing from the Community Garden)
If you are attending the Indigenous Heritage Walk, please bring a water bottle, and wear a hat and walking shoes. Participation is free, but bookings are essential – please RSVP here.
