Friends of Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Gardens Natives Naturally 2018The Friends of Maroochy Bushland Botanic Gardens present Natives Naturally for Your Garden at the Botanic Gardens, 33 Palm Creek Road, Tanawha on Sunday, September 15.

This year the theme will be ‘birds, bats and bees’ including the benefits of attracting a range of flying fauna to our home gardens. The popular program of speakers will include experts in stingless native bees, gardens for wildlife and bats as pollinators plus ‘breakfast with the birds’ from 7.30am and a birdwalk with Faunawatch.

Arrive early and enjoy a breakfast barbecue before walking through majestic native bushland to see and hear our very own early birds. Bring your camera and preserve the moment.

This is a free community event, but please bring cash for the breakfast or café. Throughout the day bird, bat and bee-friendly plants displays and sales will be on. More details are available on the website: friendsofmaroochybotanicgardens.org.au
