Wildlife of the Nillumbik Shire Film Screening

Wildlife of the Nillumbik Shire Film Screening

Includes discussion with creator Michael Smith

Over 50 people have attended this class


This documentary, captured over years of careful observation, showcases a diverse range of fauna and flora relationships that occur in the Nillumbik Shire. It includes an insight into the world of pollinators, such as insects and birds, and their significance within our local ecosystem.

The film highlights the value of considering how native fauna interact with their ecosystems, and using this knowledge to inform habitat management.

Many of the species featured in this film can be seen or heard on your local walks and conservation outings in the shire. You may learn about a colourful insect or a fascinating behaviour to look out for!

Wildlife of the Nillumbik Shire is a short (38min) film and creator Michael Smith will introduce the film and then answer questions after the screening. An opportunity not to be missed!

Light refreshments will be provided 

Tickets are limited so book in today!

We aim to ensure that people have equal access to our workshops, please give us a call on 9433 3711 to discuss how we can make these sessions inclusive and accessible for you.

Excellent photography, surprising detail ! I liked the way Michael spoke — not too fast — even poetic. His enthusiasm for our Biodiversity shone through his presentation. There should be more people like him to show us what Nature we have. Thank you, Julia.
