In partnership with the Derwent Estuary Program and University of Tasmania, Brighton Council will host a free Tidal Treasures community event. Guest speaker, Dr Vishnu Prahalad from the University of Tasmania, will chat about why our saltmarshes are so important in our environment and how we can protect them and the inhab- itants. Dr Prahalad will also discuss why he wants saltmarsh environments to be appreciated as much as Tasmania’s forests and beaches and lead a saltmarsh tour where Mayor Gray will unveil new and informative signage highlighting the importance of the Old Beach Saltmarsh. Light refreshments will be provided.
When: Saturday 19 February 12pm-2pm
Where: Old Beach Foreshore Trail (meeting point car park at Jetty Road)
