Who doesn’t love the brilliance of butterflies? The Dawson Valley is lucky to have several endemic species as well as more familiar Queensland favourites.
Over the weekend of the 15–16 October, the Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland’s Upper Dawson Branch is celebrating the Society’s 60th year with a weekend of fun, fluttery joy.
Come along to our TAROOM event on Saturday 15 October 2022 and be enthralled by two butterfly education and identification workshops run by expert guide Cliff Meyer.
You can also engage in a spot of citizen science on a guided ‘butterfly walk’ to survey and record the species seen. Bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy in the shade.
As well as mingling with like-minded nature lovers and enjoying morning tea and some free celebratory butterfly cake, you’ll learn:
- about Queensland’s butterflies and their lifecycle and ecological importance
- how to identify particular butterfly species
- how you can help sight and survey for butterflies and record your findings in useful ways.
