Seaweed celebration evening Saturday May 24th

Join us for another of our “Celebration of our coast” evenings, this time to consider seaweeds.

At the Wharf Restaurant and Aquarium Merimbula on Saturday May 24th 5:30 for 6pm there will be an evening of great interest, good food and good company.  This is a joint event of the Atlas of Life and the Sapphire Coast Marine Society to hear from four guest speakers with a shared passion and a range of perspectives.

Macro-algae (seaweeds) are a valuable resource with an enormous potential for our lives. This coast is blessed with a wonderful range of seaweeds providing habitats for a multitude of marine species. This is a rare opportunity to learn much more.

We are fortunate to have great guest speakers who are friends of this coast with a wealth of diverse knowledge to share with us – Professor Alan Millar (Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney) “The marine plants and their significance…..” , Dr. Nicholas Yee (Elgin Associates) “Bloom and Bust” , Professor Joseph Baker (Patron, Sapphire Coast Marine Society “What a difference a tide makes”, Mrs. Eva Horne (Passion for Seaweeds) “My seaweeds”

Tickets $35 per person (under 16 years $10) includes a light meal and entry to the aquarium at 5.30pm.  A raffle will be run during the evening. Tickets are limited, so please book early to secure your place.
