Aviculture involves the keeping and breeding of birds. Our club fosters and promotes the culture that forms around this. Aviculture is generally focused on not only the raising and breeding of birds, but also on preserving avian habitat. Members are encouraged to develop this awareness through the sharing of knowledge and opinions, guest speakers and articles in our monthly newsletters.
Meetings are on the 2nd Tuesday each month,
7:15pm for 7:30pm start,
at the Conference Room, PCYC,
Park Road, East Nowra.
