Science in the Hall

Coastcare membersCooloola Coastcare and Gympie Regional STEM Hub are joining forces on December 8 to bring you another Science in the Hall event, this time in Tin Can Bay. At 2pm the panel of speakers will be presenting how to manage urban runoff to minimise the impact on fishing in the area through water-sensitive urban design.

We’ll also hear about the exciting next step by Cooloola Coastcare extending the research to explore the biodiversity in the urban and non-urban creeks and around the moorings in Tin Can Inlet. Funded by the GRC Environment Levy, it is aimed at understanding the causes of the diminished fish populations in the Inlet.

Join us at 3pm for the Cooloola Coastcare AGM where you’ll hear reports about our projects including the Cooloola BioBlitz, WaterWatch, Coastal and Marine Debris Collections, the National Science Week STEAMzone Festival and youth programs, and the new TurtleWatch project and EcoFilm Club.

Join us for refreshments at the RSL Club after the meeting. Coastcare members are pictured at the Who’s New event last month.
