Would you like to see a Field Naturalist group in our region? It has been suggested that we create a Field Naturalist group here to focus on developing our understanding of the natural life of this region. There will be a meeting at the new Bega Valley Shire Training Centre (the old Auswide building) Cabarita Place (behind the Lakeview Hotel) Merimbula between 6 – 8pm Tuesday 9th February.
Field Naturalists organise visits to study the natural life in a range of habitats. We know there are many people here with interest in a broad range of species groups such as plants, mammals, invertebrates and coastal life and this will be an opportunity to form a community of interest.
It is envisaged that the group would organise guest speakers on topics of interest and also offer support to visiting or regional researchers and with their help, increase local knowledge and capacity of the natural world and current survey techniques. Data from the group’s activities will be added to the Atlas of Life in the Coastal Wilderness regional database.
If you are interested in the kind of activities described above, please join us and make your suggestions as as to how best we can explore our natural world together.
