Bird Watching Walk and Plant Propagation Katherine

We spent some of bird week in Katherine, and Mick Jerram, Land for Wildlfie member and well renowned bird specialist hosted a Bird Watching tour on the 888 hectare Gorge Road property that he helps manage. A beautiful group of around 20 Katherine locals joined us to check out the property and birds.

We have been working together with Clare Pearce from Katherine Landcare group, who also double as Parks and Wildlife Community engagement officer. While we were there we also jointly hosted a plant propagation workshop and signed up another wonderful property on Gorge Road to Land for Wildlife, as well as checking nest boxes.


There are some fantastic residents down in Katherine with  more joining the program and we are looking towards a set up where Landcare Katherine can assist landholders in the region.
The Pickering family who have a wonderful property backing onto the Katherine River showed us their area of wildlife habitat and I showed Clare how we conduct an assessment. There are a few nest boxes on our properties in the area and we hope to run more events this year.
