Celebrate and farewell our shorebirds by joining a free family friendly event ‘Farewell to Shorebirds’ being held in Robe on Saturday 25 March at 10 am.

Robbie Andrew, Project Co-Ordinator for the Our Coorong | Our Coast project is inviting members of the Limestone Coast community to come along to this interactive guided walk around Fox Lake.

Activities will include meeting The Flock, the creative community driven art project about resident and migratory birds, painting a bird of your own to join the Limestone Coast Flock, finding bird food sources from the lake and learning to identify bird species. The walk will be guided by Limestone Coast Landscape Board staff and First Nations Elder Doug Nicholls.

Robbie said, “This event celebrates shorebirds departing our shoreline to commence their 10,000 km journey back to the northern hemisphere.” There will be many shorebird related activities happening throughout the day. It will be a great day for families to come and learn more about shorebirds in the area by participating in the activities.

Lunch will be provided and the event will start at 10am meeting at Ramp 1 Carpark on The Esplanade at Robe.
