Students create stunning artworks for Trek walk

​STUDENTS from a local primary school have created beautiful artworks which will be on display at the final Trek the Trail event this month.

Shire President David Lavell said the last of three Trek events would run from 8am to 12noon on Sunday 25 September with a number of community activities.

"While the separate cycle and run events have received some great feedback from our community, the last event is expected to be popular with families enjoying the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail at a slightly less hectic pace," he said.

"People can start the walk at either John Forrest National Park or Swan View Railway Station, walking 9km to return to their starting point. Those who start at John Forrest will be directed to park at Bilgoman Aquatic Centre and be transported to the start line by bus."

Cr Lavell said there would be a number of activities at the event including art demonstrations from Mundaring Arts Centre.

"People will be able to see the natural weavings created by Year 4 students from Mundaring Christian College during a Bush Creatures and Birds incursion with artist Anne Williams," he said.

"These woven sculptures will be part of an interactive activity at National Park Falls where trekkers can create their own natural memento or contribute to a community installation with the help of textile and fibre artists Anne Williams and Marie Jacquier.

"There will also be an educational fungi dyeing demonstration by felt-maker and natural textile artist Heather Davis at Swan View where you can create your own textile masterpiece."

Other stallholders at the Trek walk event include Mundaring Community Bank Branch Bendigo Bank, Eastern Hills Girl Guides, Darling Range Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade, Bibbulmun Track Foundation. There are a number of refreshment options available including stalls at Swan View and John Forrest Tavern.

The 9km is relatively flat with a slight incline, suitable for people in wheelchairs, prams and young children.
