CWCN General Meeting - Tuesday, 30th May 2017 - 6:30pm for 7:00pm start
Guest speaker Robert Whyte will introduce us to the new "A Field Guide to Spiders of Australia". Rob is an honorary researcher in arachnology at the Queensland Museum, having developed an interest in spiders with the encouragement of arachnologist Robert Raven. He has participated in five Bush Blitz biodiscovery expeditions in remote parts of Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Queensland. He is an accomplished editor, author and journalist, with skills in photography and publication design (Source: CSIRO Publishing). Many CWCN members will know Rob Whyte as the author of the highly praised The creek in our backyard. A practical guide for habitat restoration, published by our neighbouring catchment group Save Our Waterways Now (SOWN). Rob Whyte, a gifted speaker, will introduce us to many species superbly depicted in the publication and tell us about the finding of many previously undescribed spiders during his research. His passion for spiders is contagious, and you may well expect to marvel at their beauty and ability at the end his talk.
A Field Guide to Spiders of Australia is due for publication in June. CWCN members and friends will be introduced to the new publication ahead of time and are able to view and purchase it on the night.
