Planning has already begun for the two main displays ‘hosted’ by our birding group – Maleny Wood expo and the Nambour Garden Expo. And correspondence has started to be received. As it stands I will be absent for the Maleny Wood Expo.
As stated previously I would like to pass on the responsibility for co-ordinating displays and volunteers for these two displays to another member.
The responsibilities will include
- Correspondence between Birdlife Australia – SE Queensland and the organising committees
- Organising the pick-up of interpretive materials from Brisbane [and its return]
- Organising a schedule of volunteers to be ‘on hand’ during the days.
I will retain the responsibilities of organising and leading the majority of the outings [including weekend aways, the blog, emails, attending meetings in Brisbane on an annual basis etc etc. My schedule, including taxi driver to a young family, full time work, means that I have limited time to meet all of our local Sunshine Coast sub branch’s requirements.
If someone [or several folk] do not come forward we may have to give up these useful occasions for public education and publicity. And we may have to invent other occasions for the promotion of birds, birding and bird conservation.
Cheers and please consider
