ART Meets SCIENCE Evening Event



Thursday 29 April 5.15pm – 7pm @ GOTAFE Auditorium, 10 Rowan St. Wangaratta 

An evening where you will encounter botanists, ecologists and artists, who dedicate their time to studying the exquisite beauty of nature while being attentive to the role individual species have in the landscape that surrounds Wangaratta.


Come and wonder at photographs of bejewelled birds in their feathered magnificence and the surprising

delicate elegance of native orchids.

It is also an opportunity to learn a little about how the climate disruption that is upon us, is impacting the rivers,

bush-lands and mountain ranges we cherish.
