Dear BIEPA Members, Affiliates and Friends
We thought you would enjoy this feedback from BIEPA member, Anne Bradley, on a wonderful day out birding with Birds Queensland.
Anne also regaled the attendees at Monday night’s BIEPA meeting.
Just click on the heading below and you will see some of Anne’s wonderful photos.

Some 100 Members and Visitors joined BIEPA’s annual “Wonders of the Wallum” Wildflower Walk on Sunday, 1 September, through heathland at the top of Cotterill Avenue, Bongaree.
We were again blessed with good weather and, although the long dry period had had an impact on some of the species, there were still many beautiful flowers to be seen.
We would like to thank Allan Carr of Native Plants Queensland who, as every year, shared his knowledge with the group and had prepared the tags to identify the different plants.
Thanks also to our photographers and to everyone who contributed to the success of this event, which again attracted enthusiasts not only from the local area but from the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and elsewhere.
We look forward to welcoming you all again next year!
Some intrepid BIEPA volunteers hit White Patch on Bribie Island this year for the annual Clean Up Australia Day. This year is special as we remember founder, Ian Kiernan AO, who passed away October 2018.
Our usual haunts for this event are Buckley’s Hole, Shirley Creek and Woorim Beach, but we decided to spread the word further afield.
Our volunteers collected 13 bags of rubbish including a huge amount of wire mesh that some not-so-thoughtful person had dumped in the National Park.
See BIEPA News November 2014 attached for your information.
