Special event – ‘How ants run ecosystems in Australia and around the world’

A reminder about a fantastic event coming up next weekend in Newstead.

Come along to the Newstead Community Centre next Sunday 6th July at 3.30pm to hear American photographer and entomologist Alex Wild give a presentation on: ‘How ants run ecosystems in Australia and around the world’.

Alex is a research scientist specialising in insects, especially ants, but also beetles, bees, wasps, and various other arthropods. He is also widely known as an insect photographer and teacher of macro photography – his photographs appear in numerous natural history museums, magazines, books, television programs, and other media.

    Hi. Do I need to RSVP to this event or just turn up? Cheers, bonnie

    • Hi Bonnie – you are most welcome to turn up. Gold coin donation is all that is required.
      Cheers, geoff

      • As the Norman Wettenhall Foundation and Connecting Country are helping with the costs of this event we won’t be asking the usual gold coin donation. All welcome!
