Shorebirds of the Leschenault Estuary
Shorebirds of the Leschenault Estuary; discover the beauty of threatened species at your back door
Want to learn about our threatened shorebirds and how to get involved in helping their plight? Join the Leschenault Catchment Council for a bird walk on the Leschenault Estuary on Sunday 15th October 8.00-10.00AM, for the lowdown.
As part of the new Leschenault Estuary Connect Program the LCC are hosting a series of workshops and events promoting ways you can assist in protecting the health of the Leschenault estuary from your own home.
The guided bird walk will include expert information from members of Birdlife Bunbury as well as a presentation from Birdlife WA’s Kaarissa Harring-Harris. There will be plenty of information about exciting citizen science opportunities in shorebird conservation; including the Beach Nesting Bird Program, the Backyard Bird Count and the greatly anticipated return of the Shorebird Food Monitoring program with the Leschenault Catchment Council and Edith Cowan University.
Please wear weather appropriate clothing, sun protection, enclosed shoes and bring a pair of binoculars if you have them. This walk also incudes morning tea.
Meet at the Collie River Bridge, parking available at Clifton Community Reserve Carpark. Location map will be sent through prior to event.
This event is supported by the Leschenault Estuary Connect Program, made possible through generous funding support from Lotterywest, helping build a better WA together, and Inspiring Australia.
