Nature Lovers of Geraldton are invited to a free evening of informative talks at the Geraldton Museum by two distinguished biologists.

MICHAEL PAYNE Northern Agricultural Catchment Council
Amazing things wash up onto our beaches all the time. Not only are many of these fascinating to look at, but each tells us a little story about the place it came from and maybe even how it got here. This presentation will give you a peak into the world of beachcombing and why all that smelly stuff on our beaches is so important.

RORY CHAPPLE Department of Parks and Wildlife
The birds of our seashore are often tiny and inconspicuous. Their story however is huge. Their ability to negotiate epic intercontinental migrations, plagued with life threatening challenges is one of nature’s miracles. Unfortunately these little gems of nature are doing it tough. So what do they look like and what can we do to help them? Come along to learn how to identify the shorebirds we have in in our area and see some of the many challenges they face.
