Why the National Parks and Wildlife Service is putting on a show
The National Parks Service has put on a spectacular show to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
The Parks and Recreation Commission (PRC) will be running a series of events across the country to mark the occasion, including a national bird walk in Melbourne.
Its one of the biggest events the PRC has ever run.
Forget all the news headlines, this is the moment you have been waiting for.
The event will be held in the CBD from 8am to 4pm on Friday July 19.
It is part of the celebrations to mark 100 years of the PCC.
If you are not a member, you can watch the event on Facebook.
Parks and Recreation Commissioner David Widdop said the event was about the “shared value” of our natural heritage.
“It’s a very important occasion, we have an important responsibility to protect our natural resources,” he said.
“And what better way to celebrate that than by bringing the birds together for the first time, and sharing a moment of shared joy and shared celebration?”
