Walk, talk and plant: Ploughmans Wetlands | Orange
Join the Ploughmans Wetlands Care Group, Orange City Council and Central Tableland Local Land Services for a relaxing guided walk around Ploughman's Wetland to learn about habitat, biodiversity and importance of urban wetlands in future proofing our climate.

All participants should wear enclosed shoes and bring a hat and sunscreen (gloves optional).
Orange Biodiversity Month - Plants, animals, fungi, ecosystems...
Wild and vast or small and special. Biodiversity is the variety of life on earth and it’s essential for our lives.
The Orange region is home to a multitude of landforms that provide a wide range of habitats for biodiversity. During the month of September, we’re celebrating this biodiversity through a number of events for Orange Biodiversity Month. You can sit back and relax at the movies or get your hands dirty planting a tree; there’s something for everyone.
