On a night under the bright moon 17 brave adults and children went for a wander around the Twonkwillingup (Police Pools) Reserve.

Just before dark everyone was given the opportunity to listen to some underwater creatures using a hydrophone – it sounded like hundreds of cicadas talking. We then took our torches and searched under logs and up in trees to see what we were able to find. Some curious kids got down on their hands and knees and found some wolf spiders hiding in the leaf litter, and lots of very busy ants. Others discovered some glowing Fungi in the trees.

It was a great opportunity to explore the reserve and learn about the native animals that live in the area.
