INVITATION TO NATURE LOVERS Iluka Beach Community Coastal Biodiversity Event on 15 April 2018 The Iluka Community Biodiversity Survey scheduled for Sunday 8th October will be a fun family event and a great way to learn about all the living things of the dunes, coast and near shore marine environment at this lovely location. Community members are invited to gather at the beach to observe and record all the native plants and animals of Iluka Beach. The event is both an informal biodiversity survey and a naturalist’s treasure hunt. Participants will be given a log sheet of the plants and animals to be found at that location and encouraged to find each species. Everyone is invited to record their observations by taking photos or making sketches of individual native species. Drawing material will be provided. A field laboratory with iScopeStands will transform smartphones into microscopes to view the tiny details of nature. Come and discover the beauty in the detail of delicate algae and tiny invertebrates on marine plants, the makeup of beach sand, dune plants and much more. Researchers from the University of Western Australia School of the Biological Sciences, members of Mullaloo Beach Community Group Inc, Friends of the North Ocean Reef Iluka Foreshore, Rod Smith from Birdlife WA, and the artist and environmental educator Angela Rossen will be on hand to assist participants on the day. Bring your family and friends for a fun morning from 9am to 12 noon on Sunday October 8th. Come to Iluka Foreshore Park Burns Beach Rd Iluka and follow the signs. This event is co-hosted by The Mullaloo Beach Community Group Inc. and the Artist and Educator Angela Rossen Enquiries to Sharon Mcarthur mbcginc@iinet.net
