2001 bushfire planning workshop2Community Bushfire Planning Workshop
@ Apollo Bay Fire Station, 28 Pascoe St

You are invited on behalf of the Apollo Bay Fire Brigade and CFA to join in the Bushfire Planning Workshop.

Where: Apollo Bay Fire Station, 28 Pascoe St, Apollo Bay
When: Saturday 18th January 2020, 10am-1pm

Planning for bushfire can be tough, so why do it alone? Develop your fire plan step-by-step at one of CFA's bushfire planning workshops.

During these small group sessions you will:-

Use local knowledge to prepare for a range of fire scenarios

Receive practical, hands-on guidance from CFA to help you start, improve or review your plan

Work alongside others and share ideas

Bushfire Planning Workshops run for between 2-3 hours. That might seem like a long session, but taking a bit of time now will help you to think clearly and make decisions when it really counts.

Remember - if you are caught in a bushfire it will be noisy, smoky, hot and extremely stressful. A well-thought-out plan can make all the difference.

Guest Speaker: Simona Grippi
Topic: Fossils and Dinosaurs Hunting Year! How to get involved!!!

2002 dg dinosoursSimona’s work began on the Jurassic Coast of England, searching for Ichtyosaurs.  Her interest in dinosaurs started when she found her first dinosaur bone at ‘The Arch’ (Kilkunda) in Victoria. She has travelled in search of dinosaurs to Patagonia, Argentina, the Jurassic Coast of England, and several sites in southern Victoria. She worked at the MEF Museum in Patagonia and Natural History Museum in Buenos Aires, and in Greece, Italy, Ireland, Argentina and Australia. On a recent trip to Argentina she discovered a Hadrosaurus dinosaur!

She has worked at the Eric The Red West site near Cape Otway and has recently been upgrading her skills in the delicate task of removing the dinosaur bones from the encasing rock. Simona is part of the prospecting and preparation group of Pat and Tom Rich and will be exploring the west coast of Victoria in 2020.

Simona is a scientist from Sicily, Italy, has a Bachelor degree (Hons) in Zoology, and she has been working in education for the last twenty years. She will review her work for 2019 and will demonstrate how to prepare fossils, how to recognise one and how you can get involved in the amazing experience of fossil hunting!

The meeting opens at 6.30pm to allow you to place your food order and be seated for Andrew to commence at 7pm. The Hotel offers a fixed price menu of $20 but you may order from the regular menu. Pink bowls are on each table for donations. Donations are optional but all received are distributed back into the local community.
