World Frog Day Workshop – Wednesday 20th March 2019 6:30 pm

BVLD Restaurant, Spring Lake Metro, Springfield Lakes.

Learn about the native frogs that live in our suburb, and what you can do to help protect them.  Also learn how to identify the frogs via the Frog ID App on your phone, and so become part of Australia’s citizen science community.

Please register via our Facebook site or through Eventbrite.

 

Earth Hour Spot-lighting – Sat 30th Mar 2019 5:30 pm.  

White Rock – Spring Mountain Conservation Reserve, Springfield Lakes.

Hope to see the gliders that are inhabiting the nesting boxes we installed with a Lend Lease Community Grant in 2017.  Have previously seen Ring-tailed and Brush-tailed Possums, little Red-necked Wallabys, Tawny Frog Mouths and other birds and spiders, plus heard frogs and an Owlet Nightjar.

Please register via our Facebook site or through Eventbrite. Further details available once registered.

 

SLNC General Meeting – Monday 1st April 2019 6:30 pm

BVLD Restaurant, Spring Lake Metro, Springfield Lakes.

Join us for our monthly group meeting to keep informed of what’s happening and plan new events / activities.

 

Cane Toad Catching – Friday 5th April 2019 7:00 pm.

Spring Lake Pontoon near the Ashleigh Barty Tennis Court opposite the IGA.

Please join us to in the Change Toad Challenge.  SLNC has partnered with University of Queensland to collect toads and provide their toxin so that they can make baits that can attract and catch 1000’s of tadpoles out of the lakes before they turn into toads.

Toad-busting nights are held on the 1st Friday of each month over the warmer months,  Sept to April.  You will be trained in toad vs frog identification (we don’t want to catch our lovely native frogs) and provided with gloves so you don’t have to directly touch the horrible toads.
