World Wetlands Day Goulds Lagoon

Date: February 2, 2020

 

World Wetlands Day – ‘Early Birds’ guided walk at Goulds Lagoon Sunday Feb 2

World Wetlands Day is celebrated on 2nd February each year. It marks the anniversary of the signing of the Convention on Wetlands of International Importance (Ramsar Convention) in Iran 1971.
Wetlands were once found in most of the bays and coves up and down the Derwent. Over the last 100 years most of these wetlands were filled-in to make way for buildings, factories, parks and even tips. Today, only a few of these wetlands remain, and some are highly modified.
In Glenorchy City examples of remnant wetlands can be found at Granton (Goulds Lagoon), and Claremont (Windermere Bay Saltmarsh), and in small pockets along the Derwent foreshore.
Wetlands are rich with biodiversity, and are important areas for feeding, nesting, and breeding of resident and migratory birds. Wetlands also support a multitude of reptiles, frogs, insects, and play a critical role as fish nurseries. Wetlands act as natural sponges, absorbing flood waters, and filtering out sediments, and other pollutants. They also highly effective in trapping and storing carbon from the atmosphere – serving as an offset to climate change.
To celebrate World Wetlands Day this year, Glenorchy City Council are hosting a free ‘early birds’ guided walk around Goulds Lagoon. Join us to learn more about wetlands in Glenorchy City, and what we are doing to protect biodiversity. Bring your camera or binoculars and see how many birds you can spot. Participants will get a free ‘Birds of Goulds Lagoon’ guide to take home.
Meet in the Lagoon carpark off Hestercombe Road at 8:30am.

Be More Chill

Start date: February 6, 2020

End date: February 15, 2020

The 2020 Hobart Theatre Summer School production
Be More Chill

Directed by Mikaela Campbell
6 – 15 February 2020

The Old Nick Company in conjunction with Origin Theatrical presents the Tasmanian Premiere of the hit new Broadway musical BE MORE CHILL.

The show with music and lyrics by Joe Iconis and book by Joe Tracz is based on the novel of the same name written by Ned Vizzini.

BE MORE CHILL is the new musical sensation that’s about to invade your brain… in the best way. An unprecedented international phenomenon, this original and hilarious show exploded onto the musical theatre scene and electrified audiences during its runs off- and on Broadway.
Featuring a Tony Award®-nominated score bursting with addictive earworms, BE MORE CHILL is a mind-bendingly fun hit about the competing voices in all of our heads.

It’s just your atypical love story – a guy (he wants to fit in), a girl (she wants to be noticed), and the supercomputer inside the guy’s head that tells him what to do (it wants to take over the world!).

According to The New Yorker, “If you fed ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ and ‘Mean Girls’ to the ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ plant, you’d get BE MORE CHILL.” In other words, it’s both a relatable tale about how far we’ll go for a little validation… and an otherworldly delight about a loveable geek and his very invasive (im)plant.

Performance Dates and Times:

  • Thursday 6 February 7:30pm
  • Friday 7 February 7:30pm
  • Saturday 8 February 7:30pm
  • Wednesday 12 February 7:30pm
  • Thursday 13 February 7:30pm
  • Friday 14 February 7:30pm
  • Saturday 15 February 2pm
  • Saturday 15 February 7:30pm
