Discover fossils, megafauna and climate change this April

Discover fossils, megafauna and climate change this April

After the success of last week’s Aboriginal plant use guided drive/walk  and Saturday’s Silver Xenica Butterfly hunt, the April Biodiversity ‘Up Close’ events are shaping up to be brilliant.

This includes two events where you get the chance to journey through time and discover fossils, megafauna and how they were impacted by and responded to climate change over the past 50,000 years….all based on local research happening right under our noses at the Naracoorte Caves World Heritage site.

The two events include a presentation by Dr Liz Reed, Palaeontologist from Flinders University, at the Mt Gambier Library on Wed 10 April, 7pm, and a follow up guided walk and talk by Dr. Reed at the Naracoorte Caves National Park the week after on Thur 18 April, 6:30pm, where you actually get to see some of the diggings where Liz and co have been undertaking some of their fascinating research.

While registration isn’t needed for the Library talk, there are limited numbers for the Caves Guided Walk and Talk. To register for the walk and talk, please click here.

These events are suitable for all ages, and refreshments are provided. Hope to see you there, and help spread the word!
