Promotion well under way for Moreton Bay Wetlands Expo
The Moreton Bay Expo is gathering pace with planning and scheduling well under way for this exciting event celebrating the 25th Birthday for the Ramsar in Moreton Bay. Planning for such an event is complex with insurance, logistics and communicating with our partners well under way. Another aspect is promoting the event to locals as well as our school and education community within the Moreton Bay Region. Sharon France, one of our REF committee members is also a graphic artist and she has kindly agreed to help us with our communication and has provided us with some banners (see above). Keep checking the REF Facebook and our other social media for details.
