About this event

UPDATE: The format of the Geelong Nature Forum has changed in response to current Covid restrictions. As there are limitations on numbers for public events, the Forum will no longer include the presentations or manned stalls on Sunday 26 September nor will admission to the National Wool Museum be free on that day.

Instead, the Geelong Nature Forum will be an exhibition celebrating our waterways and nature volunteer groups shown in the National Wool Museum from 25 September to 28 November 2021. The National Wool Museum admission prices apply to see the exhibition, and tickets can be purchased at the door.

The will also be free outdoor nature activities running from 25 September to 3 October.

The Geelong Nature Forum exhibition celebrates the wonderful animal and plant life of our region’s rivers, creeks and wetlands, and the amazing volunteer groups who look after them.

A break down of the Geelong Nature Forum attractions include:

Nature Group displays: showcasing the amazing work volunteer groups and environmental agencies do to look after and promote our waterways and wildlife.

Exhibitions: 'Journey along the Barwon River', the Alphabet Birds art installation and 'The Work of Nature' (a photograph series celebrating local nature volunteers).

Activities: 10 nature activities will be running between 25 September and 3 October. Visit the Geelong Nature Forum Committee Eventbrite page to view the list of activities and to register. Bookings are limited to 8 people for most activities due to Covid restrictions.

While visiting the Museum to see the Geelong Nature Forum exhibition, you can also explore other National Wool Museum exhibitions such as 'On the Land - Our Story Retold'.
