Get up close to the cheeky, colourful and mighty birds here at the Sanctuary, learn interesting facts about them and what you can do at home to encourage a feathered friend to visit. Learn about habitats for birds and the role of native plants - participants will get the opportunity to get their hands dirty and pot their own native plant to take home, to hopefully attract more feathered friends!
