Others may already be well up to speed with this, but the following was
circulated through the SA Government mailing list today.  The proposed
nature reserve includes the old Dry Creek saltworks and links all the way
up to Thompsons Beach.  I'm really sorry that I won't be able to attend
next Thursday.

*Meet The Collective – creating Adelaide’s International Bird Sanctuary
through collective impact.*

You are invited to a free, speed-networking style event to hear about how
co-design and collective impact is being used to create Adelaide’s
International Bird Sanctuary*.*

The event is being hosted by The Collective, a leadership group who will be
bringing the voice of the community into planning the new Adelaide
International Bird Sanctuary

With over 30 members The Collective will draw on its combined broad
experience and range of perspectives to influence things like how the
sanctuary will be managed, ways to make the most of opportunities for
nature-based tourism, and how ongoing science and monitoring activities
will be supported. TheCollective include Kaurna representatives, local and
international environmental non-government organisations, tourism experts,
the Vietnamese Farmers Association of South Australia, local government
representatives, Birds SA, university thought leaders in environment,
students from Largs Bay School and Birdlife Australia.

*Meet The Collective*

The Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary, located north-west of Adelaide,
will cover a 60 kilometre stretch of coast from the Barker Inlet to Port
Parham, forming one of the longest continuous coastal reserves in the state.

Each summer, at the peak of the migration season, the mudflats, mangroves
and saltmarshes supports an estimated 27,000 shorebirds. Many of these
birds are listed as threatened species.

The event is free but registration is
essential. Places are limited.
