The busy month includes these Inner West events and campaigns:

Spring Photo Call Out, until 30 November

Aussie Backyard Bird Count, 21-27 October

Take part in the Aussie Backyard Bird Count by spending 20 minutes in a ‘green patch’ of choice, and record any birds on the ‘Aussie Bird Count’ app or website. Observers can instantly see live statistics and information on how many people are taking part and the number of birds and species counted not just across the neighbourhood but the whole of Australia. The data collected is used to understand more about the birds that live where people live.

Early Birds’ Breakfast, 26 October
