The scrub on display

Today, as part of Volunteers week, the council held a Parks Volunteers Recognition and Networking Event at Newtown Park Hall.
In addition to our display we were well represented as Trish was asked to stand in as a speaker at short notice. She gave an interesting, illustrated talk on birds and local vegetation in relation to our local environment and our own gardens. She may have been speaking to the converted but there was plenty of food for thought as well as for the birds.
This was followed by another very good illustrated talk by Nathan the Snake Catcher, who also brought some reptiles for us to enjoy.
While the number attending was limited, it was a great idea and good to meet other people interested in volunteering in our parks and bushland areas.
