I am very excited to be presenting a seminar for the Upper Campaspe Landcare Network tomorrow, Saturday September 19 at 11 am.

Here is is the lovely promo written by Rebekah Ritchie UCLN Landcare Facilitator
Upper Campaspe Landcare Network Inc.
(and in a nice bit of symmetry, I had Bek’s job at UCLN prior to my five year stint at Connecting Country!)

“Upper Campaspe Landcare Network is proud and excited to bring you part two of our three part WEBINAR series – Biodiversity for your Bush Block.

Come join local science writer Tanya Loos as she explores the wonders of living alongside the fauna on your bush-block.

We are most fortunate in that in this part of the world we share our land and even our houses with some wonderful wildlife. In this presentation, Tanya will share ways to make sure that your property is a haven for wildlife – including tips on creating habitat, and how to solve some tricky wildlife problems such as birds attacking windows.

Tanya is an ecologist and mad keen naturalist (her words) and cites the likes of Gerald Durrell and David Attenborough as her biggest influences, as both a naturalist and a writer.

Tanya lives on a bush block near Daylesford with her husband, senior dog and many rescued parrots. Tanya has worked in natural resource management locally for many years, including Connecting Country, the UCLN, and for various councils. She currently works for BirdLife Australia, and writes a nature blog with accessible stories about our natural world, and advice on living in harmony with wildlife on her beautiful website Birds, bats, beetles and blossoms at

Tanya is the author of the gorgeous book, Daylesford Nature Diary: six seasons in the foothill forests. This book is a collection of nature diary articles, set to a specially devised local calendar, and illustrated beautifully throughout by Anne Mason.

These workshops are being delivered with the support of Macedon Ranges Shire Council.
