SEG AGM Friday 14th October 2022 7.30pm
Parkview Room Fullarton Park Community Centre,
411 Fullarton Road Fullarton (cnr Fullarton Road and Fisher Street)
Guest Speaker Professor Rod Wells will talk on “Caves Deserts and Playa Lakes”
Professor Wells gave up a career in engineering to return to university in the 1960s to pursue an interest in exploration and natural history. His studies of the Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat led to the establishment of the Brookfield Conservation Park in the Murraylands in 1973. His discovery of the rich fossil deposits in the Naracoorte Caves in 1969 led ultimately to their World Heritage listing in 1994. Rod has spent the last fifty years researching the fossil history of the ancient lake and stream deposits of the Lake Eyre and Lake Frome Basins.
