After the AGM, delegates and guests visited Home Park, the property of MRCCC Waterwatch delegate Garth Jacobson. The Mary River flows through the property, and on the sandy banks of the river, Mary River turtles come up after rain to make a nest and lay their eggs. Down at the river, Tiaro Landcare’s Marilyn Connell gave a very informative presentation about the Mary River turtle, including a demonstration of where and how the nest is made and the eggs are laid. Volunteers from Tiaro Landcare then work to protect the turtle nests from predators including foxes, wild dogs, goannas etc.  Click on the link for more information about the Mary River turtle.
