CITY OF GREATER GEELONG – GEELONG NATURE FORUM

The Geelong Nature Forum ‘Where the Rivers Run’ celebrates the wonderful animal and plant life of our region’s rivers, creeks and wetlands, and the amazing volunteer groups who look after them.

This year, in response to COVID-19 restrictions, the Geelong Nature Forum is showing as an exhibition at the National Wool Museum from now until 28 November 2021.

The exhibition features a variety of displays and art works including:

  • Local nature volunteer group and agency displays;
  • The Alphabet Bird Project – showcasing artworks by year 4 students portraying 26 species of waterway and wetland birds threatened in the Geelong Region; and
  • A moving visual and audio experience of the Barwon River.

National Wool Museum admission prices apply to experience the exhibition and tickets are available for purchase at the door.

Residents can also wander the completed section of the Green Spine to view the range of decals featuring illustrations of the local waterway and wetland birds drawn by primary school students.

The Geelong Nature Forum is organised by the City of Greater Geelong, Geelong Field Naturalists Club, Friends of the Barwon and Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.

It is sponsored by the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority and Barwon Water.
