Saving Our Threatened Species at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre
Threatened Species Day raises awareness about vital species that are currently under threat and what we can do to save them.
“Living in a World Heritage Area, we all need to be aware of how we can play our part in protecting our threatened species,” said Mayor Cr Mark Greenhill.
“This event is not only a great day out for all the family at one of our fabulous venues, it’s a way we can support the threatened species on our doorstep.”
The talk program includes expert speakers:
- 10am Anne Carey from Applied Ecology – Blue Mountains Fauna Project
- 11am Akos Lumnitzer – The Powerful Owl
- 1pm Dr Beth Mott Powerful Owl Program Manager, Birdlife Australia
Kids activities, from 11am-2pm, will include badge making, mask making, a treasure hunt in the library, temporary tattoos, education displays, and show bags.
The eco-cinema will run a collection of short films and documentaries about local environment and Bushcare initiatives from 10am-2pm, while an environment market from 11am until 2pm will encourage people to get involved with organisations finding solutions for pressing environmental issues.
There will be an art and book display from 10am-2pm, featuring Tallulah Cunningham’s Fragile Ground, made with scientist Deb Ashworth, and this year’s winning Waste to Art Sculpture Powerful Owl Nest, made by Branching Out Designs and the Blue Mountains community.
The event is presented in partnership with Blue Mountains Bushcare, Blue Mountains Library and the Blue Mountains Conservation Society.
