The Friends of Berowra Valley launched the inaugural Berowra Fauna Fair celebrating all the marvellous creatures with whom we share our bushland home. On Saturday the 19th March the Berowra District Hall was a hub of fauna based activity, including guided walks, a display of live frogs, native plants for sale from the Australian Plant Society with afternoon tea provided by the CWA. Throughout the event there were talks by experts on bats, birds, frogs, turtles, koalas and bees.
The day officially commenced with a very special Welcome to Country by Erin. This was followed by a day of presentations from world-class wildlife experts and ecologists. The line-up was outstanding. Visitors were able to also speak one-on-one with our experts at their displays.
Thank you to the CWA for your beautiful scones and sandwiches. The money raised by the CWA is going directly toward flood relief.
You could feel the community spirit in the room. It was so nice to see everybody come out and enjoy a great day together. We are also so blessed to live in an area surrounded by such a special natural environment.
We look forward to our next special event on Koalas at Mt Colah in May 2022.
Thanks again to all who attended and the amazing presenters and stall holders.
