Bird lovers are invited to join the Wingecarribee Shire Council at the Glossies Weekender to hear about the plight Black-Cockatoo.
Council's Environmental Projects Officer, Joe Stammers said "the Glossy Black-Cockatoo really is a beautiful and charismatic bird."
"However they're classified as a vulnerable species and if we don't help to protect their remaining habitat they face the very real prospect of extinction.
"Fortunately our region contains one of the last remaining vegetated corridors where these birds regularly feed and nest."
Four community workshops will be held over the weekend of May 11 and 12 and will feature insights from species experts Mike Barth and Daniella Teixeira as well as updates from the Glossies in the Mist project team.
"We're now entering our second year of the local Glossy Black-Cockatoo conservation project," he said.
"The information provided by the community to this point has been fantastic, particularly residents living in the Great Western Wildlife Corridor."
The Great Western Wildlife Corridor stretches between Bullio and Bungonia.
The four workshops will be held on May 11 at Bugonia Hall from 10 am to 12 pm and Tallong Hall from 2 pm to 4 pm and on May 12 at Canyonleigh Hall from 10 am to 2 pm and High Range Lane RFS Shed from 2 pm to 4 pm.
