Brisbane Valley Kilcoy Landcare is holding their Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, 20th September, at the Kilcoy Information Centre. The speaker for the night, renowned ornithologist Sheena Gillman, will give a presentation on Birds of South East QLD and the Somerset Region.
Sheena, an honorary Life Member of BirdLife Australia and founding member of Protect the Bush Alliance, has a keen interest in wildlife and conservation. She has been involved in many notable conservation projects including the Eastern Bristlebird Recovery Project, the Painted Honeyeater Project, and the Bimblebox Alliance, a virtually uncleared nature reserve in central west QLD under imminent threat from coal mining.
As well as sharing her knowledge and experience of SE QLD bird life, Sheena will highlight the importance of recording data on bird sightings and bird calls in order to better understand and protect Australia’s birds and conserve their habitats.

Brisbane Valley Kilcoy Landcare AGM starts at 6.30 pm followed by a light supper at 7.00 pm. Sheena’s presentation, including questions, will begin at 7.15 pm and conclude by 8.15 pm.
