Angair’s Annual Wildflower & Art Weekend is on again on 16 and 17 September paired with the virtual Angair Nature Show which was created in COVID times.
The weekend is a great opportunity to learn about the Surf Coast’s diverse plants and animals with a wide array of local wildflowers exhibited and named. Angair has invested in new display boxes for housing taxidermised fauna.
Many other environmental agencies and community organisations will be attending including Alcoa with a mine rehabilitation photographic display. The Anglesea CFA will be in attendance and this is an opportunity to think about your summer fire plans and preparations and have local experts provide fire preparation and prevention advice.
Anglesea and Aireys Inlet primary school children’s nature-themed art works will be displayed at the show and on the Angair Nature Show website, www.angairnatureshow.
The art show which was very successful last year will again include photography by local snappers as well as the work of other local artists. It will be situated in the Anglesea Community House.
Angair will be featuring the Anglesea Perimeter Walk. The Committee recently endorsed expenditure to upgrade the signage which has deteriorated in the decade since it was installed.
Other show features include an opportunity to purchase Angair-propagated indigenous plants, Angair publications and recycled nature-themed books. Common environmental weeds will be on display and advice on control given.
