Birds and Biodiversity walk and talk

October 29, 2022 @ 7:45 am - 9:30 am

Learn how to spot and identify birds on an early morning walk around Tempe Wetlands.

Tempe Birdos is celebrating their tenth year surveying the Tempe Wetlands and the group has identified 123 species of birds at the site – and counting!

Join us for a walk and talk around the site to hear about its rich biodiversity through bush regeneration, and how this supports a range of birds.

Virginia Niven and Isabella Robinson from Tempe Birdos will share their knowledge of the site, the types of birds living in different vegetation, tips on birdwatching and how to create your own birding list. Adam Ward, Council’s Senior Volunteer and Projects Officer will talk about ecological restoration, bushcare volunteering and local native plants at the site.

Please arrive by 7.45am for an 8am start. We will provide a morning tea at the end of the walk.

Location: Meeting spot is near the corner of South Street and Station Street, Tempe. It’s the big open area near Water Basin 1.

Accessibility: If you have any access or support requirements in order to participate fully please let us know.

Please bring a hat, suncream, closed shoes and water bottle. BYO binoculars if you want. Binocular swon’t be provided as they’re not essential for birdwatching.
