Gatton Star - - NEWS -

THE Lock­yer Up­lands Catch­ments group is hold­ing a sec­ond show­ing of the Lock­yer in the Wild Na­ture Pho­tog­ra­phy Ex­hi­bi­tion 2018 at Ma Ma Creek State School this week.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is the cul­mi­na­tion of the group’s pho­tog­ra­phy com­pe­ti­tion that ran from Au­gust to Oc­to­ber, which aimed to get lo­cals out and about into na­ture and learn­ing about the Lock­yer's amaz­ing bio­di­ver­sity.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is open 9am-3pm to Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 12 at Ma Ma Creek State School, and all are wel­come to at­tend.

Lock­yer Up­lands Catch­ments pres­i­dent Diane Guthrie said the group is al­ready plan­ning the 2019 Lock­yer in the Wild com­pe­ti­tion and en­cour­aged na­ture lovers and bud­ding pho­tog­ra­phers to put on their walk­ing shoes and get an early start on find­ing that amaz­ing pho­to­graph.

“The Lock­yer of­fers thou­sands of sub­jects in na­ture to be ap­pre­ci­ated and val­ued, from the small­est in­sects, del­i­cate blos­soms and cu­ri­ous fungi to the more vis­i­ble and iconic koala, wal­la­bies and wa­ter birds,” Ms Guthrie said.
