Join us for another of our "Celebration of our coast" evenings, this time to consider seaweeds. At the Wharf Restaurant and Aquarium Merimbula on Saturday May 24th 5:30 for 6pm there will be an evening of great interest, good food and good company.  This is a joint event of the Atlas of Life and the Sapphire Coast Marine Society to hear from four guest speakers with a shared passion and a range of perspectives.

Macro-algae (seaweeds) are a valuable resource with an enormous potential for our lives. This coast is blessed with a wonderful range of seaweeds providing habitats for a multitude of marine species. This is a rare opportunity to learn much more.

We are fortunate to have great guest speakers who are friends of this coast with a wealth of diverse knowledge to share with us - Professor Alan Millar (Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney) “The marine plants and their significance.....” , Dr. Nicholas Yee (Elgin Associates) “Bloom and Bust” , Professor Joseph Baker (Patron, Sapphire Coast Marine Society “What a difference a tide makes”, Mrs. Eva Horne (Passion for Seaweeds) “My seaweeds”

Tickets $35 per person (under 16 years $10) includes a light meal and entry to the aquarium at 5.30pm.  A raffle will be run during the evening. Tickets are limited, so please book early to secure your place.
