A Bit of a Writer?

If you have been on any SEG activity lately or have been a past member thinking about returning to the fold, perhaps you would like to write about your experience. This might have been taking part in an Expedition or one of our on going projects. Helen Johnson our SEGments Editor would love to hear from you.

Spot any Problems

If you find a problem with our website, please contact Michelle Trethewey and I will endeavour to fix it as soon as possible.

Equipment Storage

SEG has accumulated a considerable amount on equipment to enable it to carry out surveys in remote regions of the state. This includes the truck and canopy, the food trailer and cage trailer as well as a considerable amount of tents, camping and cooking equipment.

We are looking for somewhere secure to store this equipment or if a suitable shed is not available the a piece of land upon which a shed and be erected. As the truck and canopy are quite high a high clearance door to a shed is necessary. If you have some suggestions and possibilities please contact Trent Porter or Stuart Pillman.
