Wildlife Queensland Southern Branches Get Together (SBGT) and AGMThis is an important yearly event carried out by Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland. This year, on Saturday 3 September, Kedron Brook Branch assisted as host.
Members were invited to a day of making new friends and spending time with old ones, sharing experiences, networking and having a good time.
A walk through Sparkes Hill Reserve was arranged during the afternoon for interested people to explore the extensive parkland forest after recent extensive weed removal activity.
The next morning attracted some members to attend our regular monthly bird walk starting from Kalinga Park. (Note item in 'Projects').
