Future Friday morning forums of the Noosa Parks Association

Future Friday morning forums of the Noosa Parks Association. Good talks for a small donation.

Friday Forum weekly meetings are held in the Environment Centre at Wallace Park, Noosaville.  The meetings are a public information exchange attended by guest speakers, covering a range of current conservation and environmental issues.

Attendance at these forums is open to anyone who appreciates Noosa's beautiful natural environment and would like to know more about its care and protection.

Flying Fox Dispersal is topical with the colony at Wallace Park. Terrie Ridgway and Jan Davey from Flying-fox Rescue Release Noosa Inc. have some interesting video showing dispersals in other areas. This forum on August 8 is likely to stimulate some lively debate from both camps.

Ian Bailey is the guest speaker on August 15 for a joint meeting with the Bird Observers. The topic is Recording and Reporting Bird Observations.

Ann Schofield a Volunteer Community Educator with the Queensland Fire & Rescue Service will make a timely presentation about Fire Preparedness on August 22.

Judith Hoyle will talk on Projects and Activities of the BirdLife Organisation for the joint meeting with the bird observers’ group which has been delayed from June until August 29.

There is no forum on September 5 as it is Noosa Show Day. 

Bronwyn Marsh and members of the Goomboorian Community Action Group will talk about their concerns
regarding the mining threat in the Noosa River Catchment on September 12

On September 19 Dr David Schoeman from the University of the Sunshine Coast will discuss his recent research into 'Wind Intensification' caused by Global Warming.

The film ‘Rise of the Eco Warriors’ will be screened on September 26.

In addition to our guest speakers, we will continue to have members report on flora, fauna and conservation issues with regular updates from the NPA Committee. Join us at the Environment Centre, Wallace Park on Friday mornings from 10am or start the day early with Interpretive Birding at 8.30am.
