Geology with Mick Harewood (field day plus)

  • Tura Marrang Library Tura Beach Aust (map)

Atlas Naturalists Field day plus

Saturday, 5th October

10am - 3pm

Soils are fundamental to ecological systems. They influence the vegetation types which in turn determine the insects and animals that live there. And to really understand soils we need to think about rocks and their origins.

Mick Harewood has kindly offered to share what he has learned of the geology in our region. Mick’s knowledge derives from his interest in hydrology, soils, and fluvial geomorphology.

We’ll carshare for a tour of various points of geological interest around the region. Merimbula - Lochiel - Nethercote - Eden - and back to Tura Beach for a presentation and discussion at our usual meeting place, Tura Marrang Library.

To help with us with our planning, please register for this event (button below).

Where to meet

Outside Tura Marrang Library at 10am. We’ll then arrange car sharing for the driving tour of sites of interest. We’ll be returning to the Library for a presentation and discussion at the end of the tour.

What to bring and wear
