Springfield Lakes Nature Care (SLNC) is hosting a "5 on Friday" as part of the Great Southern Bioblitz #GSBioblitz. Please bring your smartphone & upload the free iNaturalist app before you come.
We will meet at the BBQ shelter 9 Teenager Park on Waterside Drive, Springfield Lakes to do some daylight flora & bird observations at Regatta Reserve. It will be a fun activity for children & adults to find & photograph 5 items & upload them to the Ipswich Great Southern Bioblitz project.
SLNC will provide a light refreshments of cold drinks & pizza beside the lake. Afterwards, we will take a leisurely walk into White Rock Spring Mountain Conservation Reserve to be in position to watch the Squirrel Gliders leave their nest box.
