Citizen Science Bird Walk

FREE Guided Lakeside Bird Walk & Talk

Learn more about the amazing birds in our local area and join in a short leisurely walk along the foreshore Lake Illawarra, bird watching with a local expert from Illawarra Birders on Sunday 26 October, 9:30am – 12:30pm at Lake Illawarra.

Details will be collected on the birds observed on the walk, and submitted as part of the first ever Aussie Backyard Bird Count, organised by BirdLife Australia. In this way, you can become a ‘citizen scientist’ for the day and contribute to scientific knowledge about our local birdlife.

This free activity is organised by Shellharbour City Council in partnership with Illawarra Birders. Young people aged over 10 years are welcome to attend if accompanied by an adult. Find out more and book your spot by calling Council on 4221 6111 or emailing
