Due to the escalating threat of the Covid-19 pandemic and in the interest of everyone’s health and safety, we have taken the difficult decision not to go ahead with our Expo (see below) planned for Easter Saturday in the Tarwin Lower Hall. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
As with many other events that have had to be cancelled, the fact that we have all worked hard to bring this event together makes it extremely disappointing, as well as for those who have agreed to give presentations and manage information stalls.
The Friends of Venus Bay Peninsula received a Bald Hills Wind Farm grant to hold this event and we have received approval for the money be held over for a year so that we can hold the event on Easter Saturday 3rd April 2021, by which time we hope the world will be back to normal.
All our other public activities have also been cancelled/postponed for the foreseeable future, although our background work to protect our precious environment continues.
Meanwhile, keep safe and well and please look out for each other.
The second Tarwin District Wildlife & Habitat Expo will be held on Easter Saturday 11th April 2020, from 11 am to 3 pm, at the Tarwin Lower Memorial Hall. A day of fun, learning and interaction with our wildlife and local flora.
Among other presentations, Black Snake Productions will be having a roving display with native animals throughout the day. Here is some information from their website:
