MoFA update July 2020

Dear friends of malacology!

We had a pleasant small MoFA meeting last week on 8. July in Vienna and here is a small update!

  • Among other things we discussed possible excursions in summer and autumn (late August to October). One excursion might lead us to the Marchauen area in Lower Austria, the other one could take place in the flood detention basin of the Wien river. Also the spring snails at Bad Fischau, and the “Fossilienwelt Weinviertel” in Stetten and the “Krahuletz Museum” in Eggenburg would be options. Until yet ,these are just first suggestions and detailed information will follow. Concerning the programmes we are open to any ideas and suggestions.
  • We now extended the deadline for submissions for Arianta 8 until 31. August.
