Oolong Sanctuary has approached COG for some assistance with leading the bird walks during this community event.  If you are able to do so, particularly if you might be familiar with the sanctuary (perhaps through an earlier COG walk) please let me know.
Please note that for this date only leaders are sought and that it is different from the planned COG outing there on Sunday 9 April which will allow COG members to visit.
