Bird watching for beginners
8:45am to 10:30am
Suitable for all ages 8 and over
Come along and learn how to watch birds, how to identify them and gain an appreciation of birds that live in Brisbane! Karawatha Forest is the perfect location for bird watching as it is the largest remnant bushland within Brisbane City, making it the ideal habitat for many different types of birds.
Environment Centre volunteer and enthusiastic birder, Michelle, will guide this introductory field workshop. Learn how to use binoculars and a field guide, and then explore the forest to observe birdlife.
