2010 Birds Australia Congress and Campout

This year's Congress and Campout is fast approaching. Register online now to 
take advantage of the member's only Early Bird special. The Congress, to be 
held in Townsville in north Queensland, will start at 6.30 pm on Friday 13 
August, with a meet-and-greet opening. Papers addressing the theme of 
"Conservation of Australian Birds; Approaches, Projects and Outcomes" will be 
presented and discussed on 14-15 August. All of this will take place at the 
Plaza Hotel, at the corner of Flinders and Stanley Streets. The Congress dinner 
will be held on Saturday night, a choice of excursions will be offered for 
early risers on Sunday morning, and a Sunday sunset cruise on Lake Ross for 
those at a loose end between the Congress and the Campout.

The Campout will be held from 16-20 August, based at Crystal Creek Community 
Centre, Mutarnee, 65 km north of Townsville. Subject to numbers, field trips 
will cover a variety of habitats, from the coast to the highlands, including 
rainforest, dry sclerophyll forest, coasts and wetlands. There are three main 
excursions: Paluma National Park; Paluma township and Birthday Creek Falls; and 
AWCs Taravale. Information will also be available for self-guided birding 
excursions to many nearby areas. In the evening, enjoy some informative talks 
by locals with expertise in NQ's birds. The Crystal Creek Caravan Park, next 
door to the Community Centre, is the suggested camping venue, though other 
accommodation is available within a 30 minute drive of Mutarnee.

For further details and the latest information, check the Birds Australia 
website or e-mail the organisers.
