Friends of Mallacoota hosted an informative Landcare Week Grow Grants event in Victoria. There were knowledgeable presentations by Birdlife Australia’s Shorebirds 2020 and Birdlife Australia for all the inquisitive minds. 101 adults and school students learnt how to identify native birds, animal tracks, nesting sites and observe nesting behaviours.

They also helped remove invasive pest weeds from the foreshore including Sea Spurge and Gladioli, sharing the interest of preserving the local coastal environment. The highlight of the day was locating a near threatened Eastern Curlew bird on the beach – what a sighting!
