Birds are not the only focus for Watch the Birdie – a free, family friendly event that is on at Gulf Harbour Country Club this weekend, on June 6.
The event offers a range of free activities for the little ones (from pre-school to around 10 years). The activities are focused on nature and the bigger picture is to inform locals about the wildlife and bush that can be found close to home, and how to protect it.
Children can make a native bird mask or kiwi magnet, or match things such as seeds and leaves with the parent tree.
Talks about the Hibiscus Coast’s natural world will run throughout the event and the bar will be open.
Free rat-traps will be available on long term loan.
It’s the first time such an event has been held and it came about because of the close relationship between Pest Free Hibiscus Coast and the club – volunteers of Pest Free Hibiscus Coast undertake pest control on the club’s golf course.
Watch the Birdie has been organised by Pest Free Hibiscus Coast’s Deborah Colson.
It is on in the upstairs bar at Gulf Harbour Country Club on Sunday, June 6, from 1pm-3pm.
