Garden expo a chance to meet community
THE Sunshine Coast Council’s Living Backyard area is one of my favourite spots at the Nambour Garden Expo.
So many inspiring exhibitors who really care about the environment and its inhabitants.
It is always a time to catch up with WILVOS supporters who relate their stories of animal rescues.
One lady had photos of an injured bird she had rung up about some months ago, and these were followed by more photos of the lovely kookaburra once it had regained its strength and was returned to its family.
Children are always excited to hear that a WILVOS community awareness officer could come and talk to their class about wildlife.
This is a free service and a wonderful opportunity to educate our youngsters about responsible pet ownership.
The knowledge about our Australian native animals has expanded and often the children seem to know more than their parents.
Another lovely gentleman was telling me about his wife who had recently passed away.
She was a supporter of WILVOS and always came to visit our community awareness stalls.
