Visit us at the 2017 Lucindale Field Days

Bronwyn Perryman
The Red-tail Recovery Project will again be attending the South East Field Days, which will be held in Lucindale 17 -18 March 2017.


Project staff and Recovery Team members will be on hand to provide information and advice about the recovery project, upcoming events including the annual count, habitat restoration for Red-tails, nest sightings and how people can become involved with recovery efforts for the cockatoo.

The Team will also be taking registrations for participation in the 2017 annual count and any sighting information that may not yet have been reported to the Team. Visitors to the site will also have to opportunity to view our interpretative displays including our flock count video.  We have both a female and male cockie on display this year, thanks to Jack and Pat Bourne and Craig and Marion Patterson for kindly loaning us the pair for the Lucindale event.  We will also be part of the popular Blue Yakka Trail with pens, tattoos and stickers on offer for the kids.

We will be situated at our usual site (site 383) on Wilson Street. Just look for our flying Red-tail flags.
 
So get down and visit the Team at the Lucindale Field Days we look forward to seeing you!
