9th & 10th November, 2019

Everyone is welcome to join the festival as we celebrate the INSECTS and BIRDS of Spring.

Simply register for one or more of the events below.


Far South Coast Birdwatchers outing

Saturday morning, 9th November (from 9am to around lunchtime)

Bring your binoculars and meet other keen birdwatchers as we explore a conservation property beside the upper reaches of the Bega River. The Kameruka site should be buzzing with birds at this time of year. The group will then explore surrounding sites along Niagara Lane and beyond. Pack your lunch, and perhaps a camera and a chair. For full details, visit the FSCB website. Everyone is most welcome.


ATLAS NATURALISTS presentation: Meet the Pollinators

Saturday afternoon, 9th November (starts at 2pm - Tura Marrang Library, Tura Beach)

Learn more about the importance of pollinating insects, their specialisations and behaviours. Local naturalist Norm Morrison will lead this discussion about the intricate relationships between plants and their insect visitors. Have you made an interesting observation lately? Tell us about it. You may even have a photo or two. Bring them along and we can help you identify what you have seen. For full details, visit the Atlas Naturalists event page.



Sunday 10th November (from 10am to around 2pm)

Join naturalists and entomologists in an exploration of diverse ecosystems. The Lake Curalo Foreshore Reserve is a biodiverse patch of regenerating wetland and edge habitat within Eden’s town boundaries. The Reserve is a refuge for a variety of birds – but we will be on the search for butterflies, beetles, dragonflies and bugs. Any small creatures we can find, with wings or without.

This event is hosted by the Bega Valley Shire Council, in collaboration with the Atlas of Life.

Bring your lunch, camera and perhaps your binoculars. More details coming soon!
