Future changes in our websiteOur KBCB committee has found an opportunity to make an improved update of the style and content of our website, and to do so with an easier system of maintaining regular changes.
Updating the existing website is relatively slow and involves considerable work time to maintain. Also, it doesn't display our activities, achievements and future aims in tune with present and changing media design.
Funding from a Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) Community Giving Fund Grant has been most timely and allows the Branch to update this website to the WordPress platform.
The present existing website will be archived through the creation of an e-Book thanks to the financial support of Brisbane City Council Community Conservation Partnerships. This e-book will be linked to the new website and contain all the historical information and records such as the monthly detailed bird observation tables.

Opportunity to extend one's experience as a Communications Officer
We are currently on the lookout for a volunteer KBCB Communications Officer to manage our Website and Social Media communication material.

Please contact email@example.com to express your interest in this role and request a copy of the Position Description.
Sparkes Hill Shipping Container Clean-up, Sunday 30 October at 8 am at our container site: Sparkes Hill Resevoirs, Longland St., Stafford (UBD Map 139 Ref, D5). We'll be cleaning, archiving, checking gear and maintaining resources.
Bring your own favourite cleaning gear though basic items are provided. Given the early hour, you might like to add a breakfast refresher for yourself. This is in a lovely forest area and it is worthwhile coming for the view as well.
Contact our secretary, Rachael, for further details.
Our next walk is on Sunday 6 November, 7.00 am, at Grinstead Park car park (UBD Map 139 Ref D8). We'll cover the general Grinstead Park area before driving up to the Longland Street entrance to Sparkes Hill Reserve (Ref D5). Direct foot access to the hill from Grinstead Park has been poor over recent years.
The 2016 Program provides a convenient calendar of these activities with details of each walk planned for 2016. See details of our bird observation project.
Please contact Outing Coordinator, Jenny Ivin, on phone 3851 0160 or for further information.
