CWCN General Meeting - Tuesday, 27th November 2018
Maria Bavin’s talk will include a background on the CoralWatch coral health monitoring program, information on the biology and health of the corals of the Greater Barrier Reef and Moreton Bay and address the threats and impacts of climate change. Using interactive reef activities everyone will have the opportunity to learn how they can help make a difference by becoming citizen scientists and monitoring the health of the reef using CoralWatch’s virtual reef and coral health chart. Maria will also bring virtual reef goggles along so people can experience the coral reef world.
Workshop on Common Bushland and Garden Insects - Saturday, 8th Dec 2018
Join us and entomologist Dr Geoff Monteith and learn how insects came to be the most successful and diverse animals on earth, learn about their behaviour, their habitat needs, and their enormous importance to ecosystem processes. An afternoon walk and the use of special insect attracting lights after dark are part of the fun. More information can be found in our flyer. Don’t forget to register early to secure a place.
