Come along and hear Sandra from Sydney Wildlife talk about the amazing range of critters that may be living in your backyard and how to create habitat for them with particular reference to creating homes for lizards. Besides just being all round great animals, lizards are fantastic because they keep down some of our more unloved backyard dwellers, such as snails and cockroaches.

Sandra will have a few backyard 'friends' for you to meet and there will be the chance to win some lizardy prizes.
