Geelong's natural places are world class! The region supports wetlands of international significance, fragile coastal landscapes, rare woodland and grassland vegetation and precious threatened species populations. Not to mention the myriad birds, mammals, plants, insects, fungi and other flora and fauna that inhabit our wild, and not so wild, spaces.
The inaugural Geelong Nature Forum, held in March 2019, was an initiative of the Geelong Field Naturalists Club, in partnership with City of Greater Geelong. It showcased our natural wonders to the community through a series of short talks from local biodiversity experts. The Forum also had activities for kids (and adults) and stalls promoting our amazing environment groups and volunteers.
A second event is now running at the Wool Museum during Oct and Nov 2021
