Ryan Barrowei and Gloria Dalywaters lead a team of young Jawoyn youth on the 5day 64 km Jatbula trail. This trail named after Ryan’s Grandfather begins at Nitmiluk and ends at Leliyn traversing the magnificent Jawoyn country side.
Although this part of special school holiday trip, ranger work was always on the mind. Ryan shared techniques to manage rock art sites and got the young crew to work at the amphitheatre clearing vines and some graffiti.
This was the first time that Jawoyn rangers have hosted a school trip of this kind and judging by the talk that is has generated around the community it won’t be the last.
Ryan thinks that this kind of activity is important to do in the formative years of young Jawoyn. He is proud of his land and of Jawoyn ranger’s efforts to nurture a strong connection to country.
Gloria was amazed at the beautiful sites that they visited and camped at. She was happy that she had this opportunity to walk with her daughter. It is something that they will cherish for the rest of their life.
