Creatures of the Night – Spotlighting at Chiltern


You and your family are invited to attend an evening of spotlighting on Wednesday 9th of December 2009 from 8 until 10pm. This is an opportunity to see some of the nocturnal animals that live in our catchment. This event will follow on from the successful spotlighting night held in September (where we saw Squirrel Gliders in the first 10 minutes), and will provide the opportunity to explore a different location in the area.


The evening will be held in the Chiltern area and will run for approximately 2 hours. For details on the specific location and to RSVP contact Kate Hill(DSE, Wodonga) on 02 6043 7926 or 0415 088 070 by Monday 7th of December.
