Term Three 2019 Calendar

For the Term of His Natural Life - Convict times in Albany
Tuesday 30 July
Albany is unique in WA with two periods of convict settlement - 1826-1831, & 1850-1868. We look at how each affected and developed the settlement, and the special problems that they posed to administrators and free settlers.

Presented by Malcolm Traill, Programs Officer, Museum of the Great Southern.


Two Decades in an Hour - 1800-1820 at King George’s Sound
Tuesday 6 August
In pre-European settlement in Albany, the area had many visitors by explorers, both English and French. Their interactions with the Menang community and their early opinions of this land and coast were always eye-opening.

Presented by Malcolm Traill, Programs Officer, Museum of the Great Southern.


Flying the Yellow Jack - Quarantine in Western Australia
Tuesday 13 August
Quarantine was a big issue in early European settlement when medicine often could not detect or treat epidemics that could spread like wildfire. A seaport like Albany was susceptible to disease outbreaks with every ship’s arrival

Presented by Malcolm Traill, Programs Officer, Museum of the Great Southern.


It’s Not Easy Being Brown - Frogs of Western Australia
NATIONAL SCIENCE WEEK

WA is home to vast numbers of frog species, most of which have developed camouflage to combat predators and survive in tough environments. Paul Doughty looks deeply into this mysterious amphibious world.

Presented by Paul Doughty, Curator of Herpetology, WA Museum

OFFSITE IN GNOWANGERUP

Traversing the Land - The story of surveying in Albany
Tuesday 3 September
Surveying often simply conveys lines on maps, but the early surveyors who mapped the countryside and laid out the townsites were pioneers, and we still use much of their work in today’s mapping of the region.

Presented by Malcolm Traill with Andrew Lefort, Surveyor, Harley Dykstra.


Medicine and Arts Intertwined - Tales of the Albany Cottage Hospital
OFFSITE AT VANCOUVER ARTS CENTRE
