bird friendly garden planting at Townsville Grammar

Well done BirdLife Townsville! Wal Threlfall Secretary of Birdlife Townsville sent in a short update and some photos of a very successful planting day at Townsville Grammar Junior School on Thursday 30 May.

Townsville City Council provided trees / shrubs etc as well as expertise , ably led by Helene James.

Birdlife Townsville provided a bird bath (installed) and nesting boxes will be installed at a later date.

To open the planting, a smoking ceremony was performed by Uncle Alfred from the Bindal People; it was also Reconcillation Week.

Councillor  Ann-Maree Gearney from the Townsville City Council was also present to open the event.
