Ever wonder what kind of frog is making that weird noise in your drainpipe? Curious about which frog those tadpoles will grow into? Keen to attract frogs to your garden?
Naturalist Martyn Robinson from the Australian Museum knows his frogs. And his insects, spiders, worms, birds, and frankly anything that you might find crawling, sliding, hopping or flying in your backyard!
Martyn is back by popular demand to speak at the March gathering of Permaculture Sydney North (PSN) at the Lindfield Community Centre, on Monday 16th March 2015 at 7pm. All welcome!
If you have frogs you want to identify, bring some pictures or recordings of their calls.
And if you heard Martyn entertain last year at PSN back in 2013 and were inspired to build ponds or bat houses or bee homes, please bring photos and stories to share with Martyn.
