Boosting Biodiversity in Breadalbane – A Community Conversation

Printer-friendly version
11 Feb 2017 - 9:45am

Venue:  Breadalbane Hall, Breadalbane Road, Breadalbane
Time:  9.45am - 1.00pm

Come along and join us as we bring scientists and practitioners together to talk about what we value about the Breadalbane region, and the special plants and animals that live in the ponds, wetlands and streams of the area.

Wally Bell will welcome us to country and share some of the Aboriginal history and connection to the region. Professor Ross Thompson, a freshwater scientist from the Institute of Applied Ecology (UC) is passionate about wetlands and streams, and will share his knowledge about the things we can do to boost biodiversity.

Dr Siwan Lovett will talk about the broad Rivers of Carbon initiative running in the Southern Tablelands, with Haydn Burgess and Mary Bonet, our local Rivers of Carbon - Breadalbane project coordinators, giving more details about the work already underway and opportunities for people to get involved.

We will start our day with morning tea from 9.45am, and speakers starting at 10.15am. Following our presentations we will move to a site visit (within 10 minutes of the Hall and parking available) to explore, and maybe find a turtle, fish or bird! Families are welcome, and if children don’t want to sit through the presentations there is room around the Hall to run around and play.

Further information can be found on the attached flier.

This is a free event, however registrations are essential for catering purposes – please RSVP here. www.riversofcarbon.org.au
