Landcare Adventures lead to a big journey with The Crossing
In late October and early November The Crossing offers a sequence of Landcare Adventures for younger (Year 6/7) and older (Year 8/9) students that set the scene for a much bigger adventure from Sea to Snow.
A Landcare Adventure for Year 6 & 7 students takes young people from Bermagui to The Crossing by mountain bike returning by canoe. Young people stay two nights in a train carriage bunkhouse with a day of landcare and sustainability tasks with a twilight exploring trip to a remote bush valley.
A Wild Landcare Adventure for Year 8 & 9 students takes young people from Quaama over the coastal range bushwalking and mountain biking to The Crossing then onto the coast by canoe. The journey into the wilderness includes finding a remote overnight tent camp and a night in a train carriage bunkhouse. The journey includes Landcare and sustainabilty learning along the way. All food is included.
Both October and November programs are subsidised by the Far South Coast Landcare Association and they run from 5pm Friday until 1 pm on Sunday. Book here for the Year 6-7 program. Book here for the Year 8-9 program.
After completing a Wild Landcare Adventure with The Crossing a year 10 to 11 student may then be ready to tackle The Crossing’s biggest journey, The Sea to Snow Journey.
The Crossing is a not for profit trust with a base camp on the Bermagui River and a volunteer Board of Directors. The Crossing was started by Dean and Annette Turner as a camp for young people to learn about and contribute to landcare and sustainability. The Crossing will be 17 this year.
