Welcome to Wildlife Queensland Upper Dawson Branch.
Our Branch usually has four meetings a year. The Activities Officer arranges the venue with property owners or National Parks. While wet weather curtails more widespread travel in La Nina years, our trips have taken us to Central Queensland’s National Parks, sandstone gorges, gas fields, coal mines, boggomosses, wetlands and forests.
Some of our members have written nature notes for local publications, and enjoy bird-watching and plant identification. Our Project Officer issues a monthly newsletter and our Activities officer a quarterly report on the Outings at which we hold our meetings.
Photographers, artists or camping and wildlife enthusiasts are always welcome to come and learn with us about this wonderful natural world in which we live.
Meetings and activities
Our Branch has Saturday meetings in February, May, August and October, weather permitting.
Venues vary and are advertised in newsletters and by email.
