Calling all magpie lovers!


Join author Nicole Godwin and illustrator extraordinaire Susannah Crispe at National Arboretum Canberra for the launch of their picture book ‘Swoop’.

All children (and big people too!) wearing a swoop-proof hat will go in the draw to win a prize. So dust off your bike helmet adorned with cable ties or decorate a fabulous hat to confuse our magpie friends. There will be loads of activities for children, a short talk on the fascinating world of magpies, plus a book reading.

Please indicate attendance via the Facebook event.
