A reminder that this will take place on Sunday
morning at the Australian National Botanic Gardens, meeting at the bus stop at
9:15 am. It is strongly recommended for all current and potential COG
bird walk/trip leaders.
The response so far has a bit slow, and while there
is no need to formally book, an indication of your attendance would be
appreciated for catering purposes (tea, coffee and biscuits). COG has
booked a room in the Crosbie Morrison Centre which will comfortably hold 25
Anthony Overs and I are looking for a relaxed,
informal and interactive session. We will start with a brief review of the
way the COG Field Trips Program is currently structured, looking for your input
into how this may be amended or improved in the 2006 version, which will drafted
in the coming months. We'll then move on to a presentation of the
principles for leading COG walks, and finish this part of the program with the
presenting of COG's draft Guidelines for the Advertising and conduct of COG
Field Trips for comment and feedback.
These presentations should be over by 11 am, and
will be followed by an hour or so's outdoor activity to put the principles into
effect. Perhaps a chance to find Shaun Bagley's Crescent Honeyeaters, or
the SBB bower?
