Field Meetings

 

Field meetings are held on the fourth Sunday and most second Saturdays of the month, from February to November.  They provide an opportunity for members to meet with one another, develop skills in identifying various aspects of the natural environment, and discover the local area.  While birds are a focus, the interests of the group include mammals, insects, reptiles, frogs, plants and fungi.

Walks are generally of an easy grade and include beach, coastline, forest and rainforest habitats.  Saturday meetings start at 2pm and generally finish between 4 and 4.30pm.  Sunday meetings start at 9am and finish around lunch time.

What to bring to field meetings?  Binoculars, water, a hat, sunscreen and insect repellent are recommended.  As some meetings involve long walks and tracks can be uneven, it is suggested that good walking shoes are worn.  Sunday meetings generally finish with lunch and a chat, so bring some food and a chair.

Visitors are welcome.  Members and visitors will be asked to sign a Registration Form, which is an acknowledgement of risks and obligations.

Field meetings for 2020:

Due to the deastating bushires in our shire, we will not be issuing a field meeting program at this time. 

Additionally, events have moved very quickly with Australia's rapidly changing response to Coronavirus.


As a community group, we have to carefully consider our planned activities.  The Committee believes that it is wise to follow the advice of medical experts and the lead of other local community groups and suspend our field meeting program for the present.  This means our planned field trip this Sunday, March 22nd is now cancelled.


We hope that we will be able to meet again soon.  Our next scheduled meeting is at the end of April, and we will reconsider that meeting closer to the time.


Take care everyone.
