Birding and Bushcare at Scheyville National Park

August 27 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Enjoy an early morning bird watch with expert guide, followed by brunch and bush regeneration – or any parts of this fun morning activity…

As part of the Cumberland Plain Restoration Program, National Parks and Landcare invite you to a morning of bird watching and brunch – with an opportunity to carry out Bushcare in a threatened woodland environment of Scheyville National Park.

You can do the birdwatch, brunch and Bushcare – or come along just for the bird watch, or just for the Bushcare… We need to do both on site…

The area has been thinned as part of preparation for an ecoburn, and we want to monitor the birds response to this, as their habitat (mostly bursaria and african olive) has been reduced. This was necessary to bring back a woodland type of ecosystem, which was originally on site and representative of the critically endangered Cumberland Plain Woodland.

Can you help out? If you are a member of any western Sydney birding club we would love to see you on site to help us determine the changes (if any) to the bird population because of the intervention we are doing on site.

We would also love to see anyone skilled in the treatment of African Olive, as there is always so much to work on in this national park.

Not trained or experienced? No problem – all training provided.

BYO hat, water, binoculars (if have them). Gloves provided.
