A Geological Perspective on the Anthropocene
 A talk by Dietmar Müller, EarthByte Group, School of Geosciences, The University of Sydney.

Human activities and the resulting environmental changes are being captured in various ways by the geological record. This talk will review how the Earth's environments have chaged before humans evolved, and how species adapted to these changes, or became extinct. We will then discuss the permanent mark that humans are now leaving on the planet - the so-called Anthropocene epoch.

 When: 5.00 - 6.00pm Friday 10 November 2017
 Where: Riverside Club, Denmark
 Details: Admission is free but places are limited. The flyer for this event can be downloaded.

Financial support for NYSF and Science Experience
 The Great Southern Science Council is offering a scholarship to Year 11 High School students in the Albany/Great Southern area who have been chosen to attend the National Youth Science Forum by the WA District Rotary 9465. The Council's intention for the scholarship is to strengthen the skills and knowledge of science in a future adult.

Financial support may also be offered for the Science Experience program. This program is supported by Rotary National and involves three or four day events at the four Perth based and other universities in December and January.

Students who are interested in attending either of these events can find more information on our secondary education page.
