It’s National Science Week starting tomorrow 15 August until 23 August. We are lucky to have our own Sapphire Coast Science Festival 2015, and to launch this, Bournda Environmental Education Centre will host some great workshops under the banner “The Wonders of Wallagoot”.
Arrive at Bournda EEC tomorrow, Saturday 15 August at 12.30pm, for a Welcome to Country/Smoking Ceremony. At 1pm there is a choice of 3 workshops, including “The Aboriginal Significance of Wallagoot Lake” with Graham Moore, “Melaleuca Dynamics” with botanist Jackie Miles, and “How did plants and animals respond to past climate change?” with Dr Ceridwen Fraser. Six more workshops will be on offer throughout the day, ending at 5.15pm. Come to one session or the whole afternoon. Entry is free. For details of all workshops on the day, see the program here.
