At the July 2018 CFNC general meeting, the guest speaker will be Tanya Loos. Her talk is titled Scientific monitoring at Connecting Country: a community effort.
Woodland birds, arboreal mammals, frogs and reptiles – what can these critters tell us about landscape health? Tanya Loos, CC’s Monitoring and Engagement Coordinator, talks about the organisation’s long term monitoring programs – how and why they were created, and what we have found so far. There will be a special emphasis on the contribution volunteers have made to the program’s success.
Tanya has worked at Connecting Country for four years, and whilst mainly a birdo, is also a field naturalist and science writer. She lives on a bush block in Porcupine Ridge with her husband, dog and a number of rescue budgies and cockatiels.
The evening event will be from 7.30pm on Friday 13 July in the Fellowship Room (behind the Uniting Church on Lyttleton St. The church is situated next door to the Art Gallery). There is no cost for entry, and both members and visitors of all ages are welcome and encouraged to attend. We look forward to seeing you there.
