VIC: Backyard Bird Count at Rippon Lea Estate
October 20, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
With Birdlife Australia we are inviting residents to get involved in bird watching for our Nature Next Door citizen science program and get involved in the Aussie Backyard Bird Count.
At this workshop you will learn how to identify the birds likely to be found in Glen Eira and how to take part in the Aussie Backyard Bird Count.
The workshop will involve a presentation by Leap into Nature’s Christina Renowden, followed by a ‘bird walk and talk’ around the beautiful gardens at Rippon Lea Estate. Residents are encouraged to take part in this workshop to become informed and inspired to take part as a citizen scientist in our Nature Next Door program.
We will also have a quiet bird-inspired art and craft corner for younger members of the family. Bring your own binoculars if you have them.
This event will be run as part of Rippon Lea Estate’s Botanica Festival.
