-The Poets Walk+The Living River launch was a spectacle of light and colour, even more joyous with a heavy fall of much-needed rain! About 60 people attended the launch with illuminated waterbugs hung in and around the Gallery, and a small group walking the Poets Walk in the rain as Dave Butler read John Butler'​s poem from each of the completed stone cairns. ​  
 + 
 +It was a truly celebratory night and great tribute to John Butler, whose vision for the Poets Walk is now complete, with six stone cairns and flood marker cairn along the walk beautifully restored by stonemason Ted Cole.

 +Work will continue over the coming years with improvements to the walking track and further regeneration along the riverbank - keep your eye out for working bees.

 +**Launch of Living River, 2 May at twilight.**  
 +  
 +Living River is an onsite environmental art project along the Poets Walk, Swifts Creek featuring water bugs and river creatures in a range of media.
  
 The Poets Walk was initiated by local resident and poet John Butler, and the plan was to feature verses of his poem, The River, on stone cairns along the kilometre walk.  This work was not completed by the time of his death, and the walk has fallen into disrepair. However it is now being renewed and revegetated by the local Landcare group and other community groups. The Poets Walk was initiated by local resident and poet John Butler, and the plan was to feature verses of his poem, The River, on stone cairns along the kilometre walk.  This work was not completed by the time of his death, and the walk has fallen into disrepair.
