Ant Talk – 15 August 2013

Local ecologist Karl Just will be presenting a talk on Ants and their important role in native ecosystems on Thursday 15 August between 8 pm and 9 pm at the Newstead Community Centre.

Among other things, the talk will explore the origin and distribution of ants, the fascinating relationships they have with other organisms and their potential for use in monitoring. Some common species occurring in the local area will also be discussed. 

The evening has been organised by the Newstead Landcare Group and a gold coin donation on the night will help to continue to provide these interesting talks (and supper).
