  • Connecting Country AGM – 2.00 pm on Saturday 26 September 2020

Connecting Country wishes to announce we’ve scheduled our 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) for 2.00 pm on Saturday 26 September 2020. This year’s AGM will be a little different: for the first time ever we are planning an online event via Zoom. But as usual, it will be much more than an AGM! Our online event will include two very special presentations.

Two excellent and engaging speakers: Jess Lawton (Connecting Country) on ‘Connecting Country’s ten years of ecological monitoring‘ and Jacinta Humphrey (La Trobe University) on ‘The impact of urbanisation on birds’
