Our first birdwatching outing will be a gentle stroll around part of Lake Benalla on Thursday 12 March 2020. The lake at Benalla provides an excellent introduction to the waterbirds and bush birds of the area.
For most of our outings we meet at the car park behind the Seniors Community Building, but for this one please meet at the edge of the lake behind the library, at 9.30am.
Locations for April and May will be advised nearer the time and advertised in the monthly U3A Newsletter. Possible places include Reef Hills State Park, Winton Wetlands or other reserves or private properties near Benalla.
What to bring? Binoculars make birdwatching much more enjoyable. If you have binoculars please bring them. You should also wear sturdy walking shoes and a hat. Bring a water bottle and any food you require for the morning.
Please note that if it is a day of Total Fire Ban, the activity will automatically be cancelled.
