The Attraction of Birds

Local birders Kaye and Margaret Pointer will share their love of birds and gardening in a family friendly workshop.

Learn about:

  • local birds
  • how you can make your garden and suburb a great place for birds and wildlife
  • the benefits of recording and sharing bird observations

There will be a bird inspired craft activity.

More about Kaye and Margaret:

The love of birds is in the blood. Both Kaye’s and Margaret’s interests started before they walked. Two of the founding members of Central Coast Branch of Birding NSW (27 years). Involved in guiding bird outings, and education on the Central Coast. They have participated in many surveys monitoring, or searching for birds including rare and endangered species. They have teamed up with other local birders over more than 20 years in the annual Twitchathon, to fundraise for bird conservation projects. Kaye and Margaret will knock back other activities to go birding in the garden, or across the Central Coast.

The workshop follows the monthly garden working bee from 10am - 1pm.  Feel free to come early and lend a hand or just enjoy a picnic lunch in the garden.  For more information please call Lisa 0429 431 889.
