EVENTS in 2015

Historic Images of Morialta exhibition throughout 2015

The committee of the Friends of Black Hill and Morialta Inc appointed a sub-committee to organise the Centenary events. One of the initial tasks was to research, select sort, prioritise and source historic images of Morialta Conservation Park. There were many, many images to choose from. Some were held in National and State archives, some were privately sourced. Some were of exceptional quality, some of lower resolution. In total 20 framed prints were produced, several of them featured 2 images.

Each framed image was reproduced on Ilford Lustre Photo Paper using Ultrachrome HDR long life pigment inks and professionally mounted in a q\walnut coloured frame with a cream mat behind Tru Vue Conservation Grade glass with 99% UV protection.

Size of portrait format images is 730mm high by 570mm wide including the frame. Size of landscape format images is 570mm high by 730mm wide including the frame.

Throughout the year, the images were displayed in various galleries in the immediate vicinity of Morialta. An on-line auction was set up to allow people to bid on one or more images. The auction was timed to conclude with the Centenary Picnic on 8 November 2015 at 3:00pm. Proceeds of the auction will be distributed amongst the sponsors.

BioBlitz in partnership with the Discovery Circle

Supported by a grant from

18th and 19th September 2015

The BioBlitz will involve teams of scientists working with the public in a race against the clock to discover and record the life at Morialta. They are a fun opportunity for members of the public to have a hands-on experience and to contribute to scientific research through Citizen Science. This event will target the local community and encourage visitors to the park to discover the fascinating wildlife on their doorstep.

The BioBlitz will run over 2 days and will commence on a Friday morning with a series of hands-on activities for local school classes. From Friday afternoon through to Saturday afternoon, scientists will work with the public to survey the local biodiversity of the park. Surveys will include searching for and recording mammals, frogs, reptiles, bats, insects, plants and birds.
