EARTH AND SKY – JUNE MEMBERS WEEKEND

Binna Burra 18th and 19th June RSVP by the 26th May

Our June weekend is going to be hosted by our friends at Lamington Natural History at Binna Burra.

They have devised an exciting activity program with the theme of Earth and Sky.

This weekend will be an opportunity to gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of the geology and astronomy of the area. 

Stephen Molan, the bursary recipient will provide an overview of his research, the study of Fleay’s Barred Frog Population. The main presentation and field excursion are on the topic of Volcanoes of the Border Ranges by experienced geologist Warwick Willmott. It will provide members of an understanding of the history of the Lamington landscape. Following the presentation we walk up to Mt Roberts for an overview of the region, have our BYO picnic lunch there and walk down the Caves Track for a closer look at the geology and its impact on the vegetation.

The social Saturday evening will start with drinks and nibbles at 4:00pm followed by dinner. This is a great opportunity to chat and get to know other members. Following dinner there will be an astronomy activity.  

Sunday morning starts with a free breakfast followed by a weed identification session followed by a weeding activity in the park.
