About the event

Come and join us looking for Wet Tropics birds, and learn how to survey for them. We will undertake bird surveys at a number of sites within the Misty Mountains area over the long weekend.

To join us you will need:

  • to be completely self-sufficient with your own camping, sleeping and cooking gear and food.
  • 4 wheel drive vehicles would be beneficial to access more remote sites.

After dinner on Saturday 30 September, we will provide an update on the Wet Tropics Birds in Wooroonooran National Park Project.

Please register your interest in attending with the event organisers, Ceri Pearce and Amanda Freeman to assist planning.

We look forward to seeing you there!
