More about this event

The Walk See Play initiative is a simple nature game for all ages that has been set up for Threatened Species Day (7th of September) and Biodiversity Month (all of September).

The Southern Highlands is rich in biodiversity and provides critical habitat for threatened species. However, they can often by elusive and tricky to observe while walking through Southern Highlands bushland reserves and National Parks.

To help visitors discover the mystery behind biodiversity, the Walk See Play initiative has developed a web app to direct visitors to keep an eye out for biodiversity tracks, traces and important habitat features. This web app can be opened on a smart phone or tablet.

If participants, prefer to take photographs with their camera, they should firstly visit the Threatened Species Day web page to see what the nominated list of biodiversity tracks, traces and habitat features are. They can then add their photographs by using the web app on a computer at home.

Keep an eye out for Walk See Play signs that will be installed temporarily at participating locations.

By participating in the initiative, participants will be added into a draw to:

  • win the opportunity to name a local koala or glossy black-cockatoo;
  • win a seedling (eucalyptus or she-oak) prize pack (Terms and Conditions apply).

The Walk See Play initiative is a partnership between Council and the NSW Government’s Saving our Species program. 

For more information including a list of clues and participating locations, see: Threatened Species Day.


To participate in the Walk See Play initiative during September, please open the Walk See Play web app and follow the prompts.
