Science in the Park 7 Jan 2022


Out of stock


Join us for a day of Science in the Park.
We’re celebrating the citizen scientists of our region with a day of live science talks on the lawn at Gympie Bone Museum.
First up will be Koala Action Gympie Region. We’ll hear about the koala population of the area, where they are, how they are and what they’ve taught us about the health of our forests.
Next up are the volunteers of the Tin Can Bay dolphin squad – champions of the dolphin pod. Rain, hail or shine they show up every morning to check in with the Australian Humpback Dolphins that have been visiting Tin Can Bay for 25 years.
Gympie & District Landcare are coming to talk about all the beneficial insects they employ to keep our environment safe from invasive pests and weeds. It’s going to be the coolest show and tell we’ve had for ages.  We’ll get the flesh eating beetles out and compare creepy crawlies.
Gympie Regional Council Lands Protection team will be with us until 1pm with their informative presentation about weed and pest animal management in the region. A great chance for all the new tree changers in our area to find out how to best look after their new blocks.
Science in the Park will be a casual Q&A event with plenty of opportunity to chat with the guests and asks questions. Hands on exhibits will also be part of the talks.
As we get closer to the date we expect to have more science superstars join the Science in the Park program. Bring a picnic and enjoy the lovely grounds.
Ticket includes free entry to Gympie Bone Museum. (entry to Woodworks Museum is separate)
This is an all ages event. The Museum precinct at 8 Fraser Rd is a pet friendly venue.
This project is sponsored by the Regional Arts Development Fund and is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Gympie Regional Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
