Tune in to the richness and diversity in your local environment with this playful, quirky guide that's packed with interactive projects, nature writing and sketching activities.

In cities and suburbs all over Australia, a staggering array of animals and plants make their homes among us. If we pay attention, each encounter with a bird, a flower or a bee is an invitation into a fascinating world of growth, decay, communication and sensation - and it's all going on right under our noses.

Did you know crows can identify humans by their faces? Or that ibises can 'see' with the tips of their bills? Let the team from the Urban Field Naturalist Project amaze you with weird and wonderful facts about cockatoos, magpies, spiders, possums and other animals just outside your doorstep. Then get inspired to cultivate a deeper connection with tips for observing, sketching, photographing and making field notes - or simply sitting still to observe and listen.

Whether for an afternoon of exploring or a walk to the letterbox, A Guide to the Creatures in Your Neighbourhood is your ticket to slow down and get curious about urban nature. No matter where you live, you'll have a front row seat!
