Small native birds need suitable resting places between bushland areas in order to move around safely. You can help them survive by planting native shrubs and groundcovers that will become their protective habitat havens.

Please wear closed shoes, a hat and sunscreen. Tools and gloves will be provided.

LOCATION: Meet at Bedlam Oval near the toilet block in the Gladesville Hospital grounds, enter via the Punt Rd gate next to the Police Station.
