Excursion
Geology of the Adelaide Hills face It’s been there for half a billion years! Why didn’t anyone tell me?

Date: 6/6/21

On this field trip, as we wend our way through the hills, we’ll make a few stops to marvel at the repeating fault block pattern, their shear zone boundaries, and the formations and their contacts. We’ll learn how the geology has shaped the geomorphology, understand why the hillscarring quarries are where they are, and why Mt Lofty is so lofty.

 

Lecture
What is the impact of urban infill on biodiversity?
Date: 6/5/21

Adelaide is a biodiversity hotspot --as one of only 15 in Australia, the region is home to an enormous variety of species. And many species are under threat from pest plants and animals, habitat loss and competition for space and resources. However, others are thriving, and successfully managing the transition to living with humans in an urban context.  This talk will discuss the relationship between humans and nature in the city of Adelaide and introduce the developing discipline of urban ecology.
