Southern Branches Get Together (SBGT) and AGMThis is an important yearly event carried out by Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland. This year, Kedron Brook Branch is assisting as host.
Members are invited to a day of making new friends and spending time with old ones, sharing experiences, networking and, importantly, having a good time. This activity also ensures that our society discharges its legal obligations.
Please use the official registration form and return it as soon as possible but note it's cheaper before 18th August. Find out more details through this link.
Note that the usual monthly bird survey (See Projects) planned for Sunday 4th September from Kalinga Park to Benelong Park is virtually filled now.
|Cedar Creek is an important tributary of Kedron Brook. Beautiful patches of remnant forest can still be found along this creek though accelerated housing within this area now raises a serious concern. (7 August 2016)|
