Come and listen to Professor David Karoly, Leader, Earth Systems and Climate Change Hub, National Environmental Science Program, CSIRO, talk about:
Climate change and the Mullum Mullum: where are we now and where are we heading? – Climate change is already having significant impacts across Australia that are affecting the Mullum Mullum Valley.
Seasonal flowering is occurring earlier, heatwaves and bushfires are more intense and more frequent, and rainfall patterns are changing. Much worse is in store if we don’t rapidly and substantially reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
We know how to do this. The transition to a zero carbon society provides many opportunities for better, healthier and more sustainable communities with more jobs in new industries.
Check out the festival brochure and find out about the exciting selection of over twenty expert-lead walks and presentations that will leave you with a greater understanding and appreciation of our beautiful native bushland.
The program will start off this year on the night of the 28th of April with a spotlight tour in search of nocturnal wildlife. This will be followed by the opening of the Festival with a celebration of Aboriginal culture on Sunday the 29th of April at Yarran Dheran Reserve.
This day will also include nature walks in English with Mandarin and Arabic interpreters, a guided walk on aboriginal use of indigenous plants, Aboriginal craft workshops and talking circle, music performances, displays and food.
