IAN ROBERTS: MAPPING THE VEGETATION OF THE OTWAYS. You are invited to join us for a presentation from Ian Roberts of Earth Resources Analysis from 7.30pm on the evening of Wednesday November 2 at Marrar Woorn. Ian has been mapping the landscapes of the Otways for many years, his work leading to the identification of the Barham Big Tree Reserve. He has recently been considering issues relating to the impact of a warming climate on the cool temperate rainforests of the Otways. Ian is also interested in the role of blackwoods in our vegetation communities. We will provide light snacks so an RSVP for catering purposes would be greatly appreciated: / 5237 6904.
