Between October 2018 and July 2019 CWCN will be celebrating local biodiversity with ten free workshops. Topics range from water bugs to mistletoes, common bushland and garden insects, fungi, bats, edible plants, owls and other avian predators, small native mammals, threatened species and habitat creation for frogs and small birds. Don't miss out and mark your calendar now! Check out the flyer flagging all events. The workshops are possible thanks to funding received from Australian Government's National Landcare Program and Brisbane City Council's Conservation Partnerships Program, and support from Queensland Water and Landcarers and The Local Bulletin.
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.
