Ferny Creek waterways and corridors are home to a range of birdlife, including migratory species from Japan and China. 

The Friends of Glenfern Green Wedge are a keen group of community scientists who, under the mentorship of Birdlife Australia, have been surveying Ferny Creek for 5 years.

By taking part in this event you can directly contribute to discovering important bird species and help conserve their environment.

The guided walking route starts at the retarding basin and travels west along Ferny Creek in a set route developed by Birdlife Australia.

The walk will take approximately two hours and the terrain is flat with mud at various points. 

Please respect our plants and wildlife when taking photos. Spring is nesting season for many birds and flowering time for many orchids and herbs so try not to cause any damage or disturbance.

What to bring:

  • Gumboots
  • Warm coat
  • Binoculars

Register to secure your place.

This event is provided as part of Biodiversity Month 2022.  For a full list of events, please see our events page.
