Friday Forum

GUEST Speaker at today's Friday Environment Forum is Margaret Cameron who will talk about attracting birds to a suburban garden.

In 2004, after 40 years in the southern states, Margaret returned to Queensland to live. She found a grassy garden with some birds, but was determined to attract a greater variety of very different birds. She succeeded and now has 30 or more different species visit every month.

Margaret's free talk begins 10.30am at the Environment Centre, Wallace Park, Noosaville.
