Friends of Narrabeen Lagoon

Catchment have arranged

two low-intensity activities

for participants of all ages in

October. On Saturday October

from Mona Vale Road to

Narrabeen Lagoon, passing

through endangered vegetation

communities of cabbage

palms and paperbarks. Plants

will be identified throughout

the route, which should take

4.5 hours to walk, and you’ll

get to join in some weeding

towards the end (gloves required).

More info and bookings

643 295. On Sunday October

21, enjoy a relaxing threehour

eco paddle on Narrabeen

Lagoon, taking in the Western

be given. BYO boat, or a hire

kayak can be arranged for you

at cost. Bookings essential;
