Gulf Savannah NRM will host events for rural women in Normanton and Karumba early in November.
The House Sparrow rural women's day events will feature craft and fun activities, and an opportunity to share information about local issues.
Gulf Savannah NRM Indigenous Engagement officer Natarsha Bell said the house sparrow is an appropriate "totem" for these events.
"The house sparrow is always in groups. They're never on their own - there's a message in that for us. Whatever life brings us, being in a group, being with friends, makes us better able to deal with things," Ms Bell said.
"Women of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to join us. We've got something for everyone, and it's a great chance to meet people and have some fun," Ms Bell said.
These free events will be held on Saturday, November 6 at the Normanton Shire Hall, and Sunday, November 7 at the Barra discovery centre in Karumba.
Indigenous artist Helena Loncaric will lead a craft session, sharing her method of adapting traditional weaving techniques into earrings.
There will be sessions from Lynette McGuffie and Kerry Major on looking after household, family and yourself. Madi Worsfold will share gardening tips, and there'll be plenty of seeds and seedlings to take home.
There will be activities for kids and a free buffet lunch.
Natarsha Bell encouraged local women to attend the events.
"We're really happy to put on local events for local women, where we can meet, have some fun, and talk about things in a safe and supportive gathering.
"We look forward to seeing you in Normanton and Karumba."
