Past Events


Come have dinner with us at VicBioCon!

Next week is the Victorian Biodiversity Conference – one of the best local conferences getting around! To take advantage of the fact that so many ecology and conservation researchers from across Victoria will be descending on the city, we’ll be having another ‘meet and greet’ dinner. Come join us for a chat and a feed after the poster session on Thursday night.

You’ll get to meet other members and hear about the activities and initiatives we have planned for 2019, and mingle with those interested in ecological research and conservation management across Melbourne and Victoria. We’re also on the hunt for people to nominate themselves for our 2019 committee, so come along and learn about the positions available, the kind of work we’d like to do, and how your skills might help.

Stay for dinner or just pop in for a drink and take advantage of the free nibbles (unfortunately we don’t have the funding to shout you dinner and drinks yet). All welcome, but please RSVP so we have an idea of numbers.
