We can't protect what we don't know, so help us complete a bird survey with local experts at this important nature reserve at Sir Joseph Banks Park. Enjoy the company of like-minded people as you learn about this special reserve and the wildlife that call this place home, which includes over 100 species of bird! Snacks included :-)
Sir Joseph Banks Park is a very important nature reserve on the Botany foreshore, providing rare homes for native animals and a glimpse back in time at plant communities that have since disappeared.
This area is home to over 100 different birds, blue-tongue lizards, water dragons, turtles, bats, frogs and possums; as well as rare plants which create the (now endangered) Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub.
Unfortunately in the past this area has suffered serious damage, from pest plants and animals and loss of habitat for native species; but there is so much we can do to give the place a helping hand to ensure this wildlife haven will continue to grow, so it can be enjoyed by future generations.
To help protect the native plants and animals in the park, there’s lots to be done. By volunteering with us, you may have the opportunity to remove invasive plant species, maintain walking trails, collect rubbish, mulch and prepare the site for future planting events and even take part in a wildlife survey.
You will also get to meet some like-minded people and enjoy some yummy snacks!
Upcoming events: Sat 1 April, 7am-9am Breakfast with the Birds,
