    • Subject: official invitation from MTQ & Birdlife to official opening of 'nestled'

      Greetings friends,
      I would like to invite you all to attend the official opening of 'nestled' our first dedicated bird exhibition. 'nestled' is about birds and their nests. Opening date is Nov 10th which is a Tuesday 10-11am followed by a talk given by Janet Robino the current Birdlife president here. We will have 6 cases + floor space and I am thrilled. We started with no cases of our own, to the Brolgas( Birdlife Northern) being on permanent display and now 2 cases dedicated to changing displays of taxidermy thanks to Birdlife Townsville & MTQ and finally we have our own exhibition.

      Each of you have played a part, by donating items or offering other forms of assistance and for this we thank you.

      Website: http://mtq.qm.qld.gov.au/

      The exhibition will run till the 27 March!
      Thanks again for your help and I hope to see you there.
      Beth and team
