When I heard that our friend Ben was going to a Goongerah Environment Centre (GECO) Citizen Science Camp at Kuark Forest, I knew he was going to enjoy his nature-based experience.
Enjoy Ben’s piece about Kuark.
And if you want to get involved with citizen science camps in the Errinundra Plateau, you can learn more here.

Bundled in after morning meal, tired, excited guiding the wheel
Songs and shrieks 3 and 5, mile by mile beginning to thrive
Scattered habitat borrowing natures creation, enriching soul, mind elevation
Weaving, breathing, cool energising, base camp smoulders, loving shoulders
Absentee digital distraction, orange red, sunlight refraction
Distilled, inspiring, secret wiring, together alone, (and all of this) …… 3 hours from home?
This is a place to be revered.
