Friday 31st July at 7:30 PM

Venue: Redlands Indigiscapes Centre – 17 Runnymede Rd, Capalaba

Mt Cotton and West Mt Cotton support a number of populations of macadamia, some potentially under threat.

The talk is open to the public and free.

She has worked with community groups across the South-east Queensland region in the development and delivery of environmental projects, and loves getting outside and getting her hands dirty.
At the Macadamia Conservation Trust, we’re passionate about wild macadamia. While the sight of rows upon rows of trees in macadamia orchards might give the appearance they are plentiful, all of the four species are actually listed as threatened or endangered in the wild. What’s all the fuss about ‘wild’? Join us for a discovery talk about all things macadamia, learn how Redlands is lucky enough to have two of these species still existing in the wild and hear how we can work together to keep these uniquely Australian trees for our grand kids.
