Ex­pert talks on Bur­rup

Pilbara News - - Lifestyle -

Join guest speaker Vicki Long for a free talk on the unique­ness of the Bur­rup Penin­su­lar at the Kar­ratha Li­brary on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 15, at 11.30am.

Learn what makes the Bur­rup so unique in terms of its ge­ol­ogy, to­pog­ra­phy, veg­e­ta­tion and, of course, rock art and why we should pro­tect it.

Ms Long has lived in Kar­ratha and worked as a botanist in the Pil­bara, es­pe­cially coastal Pil­bara, for more than 30 years.

She has con­ducted many sur­veys on the Bur­rup and was one of three WA botanists com­mis­sioned by the Gov­ern­ment to sur­vey the Bur­rup for flora and veg­e­ta­tion in 2000.

Ms Long also co-wrote the book Along the Bur­rup —– Na­ture and Habi­tats of the Bur­rup Penin­sula, Pil­bara WA, which is avail­able to bor­row from the li­brary.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact He­lena Mead at Kar­ratha Li­brary on 9186 8660 or email kar­ratha.li­brary@kar­ratha. wa.gov.au.

Book­ings are es­sen­tial.
