Saturday 3rd August at ERBG
Tony Eggleton, retired professor of geology at ANU, has kindly offered to speak to us about climate change and the challenges of meeting our energy needs.
We will start talk promptly at 10.30, but convene for morning tea at 10 am if you wish, at the staff room area/deck.
At the staff tea room opposite the herbarium. (changed venue, because the usual meeting room is occupied by the shop due to new building works)..I suggest most of us park in the usual places, as the parking is limited near the nursery area, and we should keep this free for anyone with mobility issues.
10.30. Tony's morning talk will be in two parts: firstly about the science of climate change, and then have a question time, and secondly, options for alternative energy generation and use, followed by questions.
Noon. Lunch. BYO, or café is open in usual place.
1 pm Show & Tell. Bring your interesting plants, as usual. Maybe think about which plants you bring, in the context of a changing climate?
Followed by an open discussion on relevance of climate change to our region, ecosystems, and species - and your gardens!
[I will try to facilitate this. Please bring your thoughts/ideas, more questions!]
Hope to see you on Saturday.
As always, members are advised to bring morning tea and lunch. A chair might also be useful.
Wear sensible clothing and shoes suitable for the planned outdoor activities, and, a sunhat might be a wise inclusion to encourage fine, but not too hot, weather on the day.
