World Wetlands Day will be celebrated at GJ Walter Park, Toondah Harbour, Cleveland starting at 8am on Sunday, February 2, and everyone is invited.
This event is one of many around the world to raise awareness about the vital role of wetlands for people and our planet - and the need to protect them.
Redland2030 president Steve MacDonald said activities could help paint a large wetland-themed banner and posters, watch wader birds through long range telescopes, learn more about local wetlands and the many creatures that depend on them, have a free sausage sizzle, and see koalas.
Entertainment would include the band Ankor and local singer-songwriters Troy Robbins & Simon Ball
Redlands2030, BirdLife Australia, the Australian Conservation Foundation and the Wilderness Society are celebrating World Wetlands Day at Cleveland and are oppose the proposed $1.4 billion Toondah Harbour development being built on wetlands.
Wetlands and Biodiversity is the theme for World Wetlands Day.
Mr MacDonald said wetlands were rich with biodiversity and were habitat for a dense variety of plant and animal species.
"Latest estimates show a global decline of biodiversity, while wetlands are disappearing three times faster than forests," he said.
"This year's theme is a unique opportunity to highlight wetland biodiversity, its status, why it matters and promote actions to reverse its loss."
