Inaugural meeting of the Victorian Branches of BirdLife Australia

If you're interested in birds and conservation in Victoria then you won't want 
to miss this meeting.

The day will start at The All Seasons Hotel, McIvor Road, Bendigo at 10 am with 
an early morning tea and a chance to meet or catch up with other Birdlife 
Australia members and friends from around Victoria (and just over the borders). 
We will then settle in to the conference room to listen to Birdlife Australia's 
new CEO Paul Sullivan who will present opportunities for the BirdLife Australia 
network to improve bird conservation outcomes, especially in south-eastern 
Australia. Amongst others Holly Parsons will talk to us about the Birds in 
Victorian Backyards scheme and Euan Moore from the Victorian Conservation 
Committee will describe the Important Bird Areas in Victoria projects and how 
you can become involved in - if you're not already. The proposed role of 
Birdlife Victoria will then be discussed and a short AGM held.
After an included lunch the afternoon session presentations will focus on 
landscape scale conservation and the role of volunteers and enthusiasts in 
protecting our environment. Amongst other speakers Chris Tzaros will talk about 
the role volunteers are playing in the landscape restoration and the return of 
threatened woodland birds to the Lerg Hills of north east Victoria and Jenny 
Lau our Conservation Officer will be talking to us about some of the major 
conservation challenges for Victoria and ways we can improve outcomes for the 
birds of Victoria. Finally Gary Oliver will regale us with stories from his 
recent attempt to photograph as many birds species as possible in Australia in 
one year.

Starting at 8 am on Sunday morning there will be free guided birdwalks for 
Meeting Registrants in the Bendigo Region, led by local experts. Bendigo is at 
the centre of one of the premier birding regions of Victoria and these guided 
walks will show you just how good this area is in Autumn.

For further event information and registration go to<>
 ring BirdLife Australia (03) 9347 0757 or Stuart Dashper 
<> Please note that Registration 
has been extended until next Tuesday, April 16th.

Please join us for what will be an outstanding weekend.
