The session will begin at 10:00 AM until noon. The Community Environment Centre is located at Currie Avenue in Annangrove, NSW, 2156.
The National Bird Week is being celebrated across Australia. Along with workshops in various environmental centres and respective councils, the bird conservation organisation BirdLife Australia is leading the annual Aussie Bird Count.
Now in its 10th year, the annual event unites amateurs and enthusiasts in their own properties, play areas, and parks in counting how many birds they spot within 20 minutes.
