Bring ya bug, fungi or plant along

  • Saturday, April 07, 2018
  • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Maleny Community Centre



Have you ever found a really odd (interesting) bug?  Or an especially bizarre fungus that resembles a cage?  A plant with a leaf reminiscent of a candle flame? 
And wondered, what on earth is that?

On Saturday the 7th of April we will be holding an event at the Maleny Community Centre that we anticipate may resolve such conundrums.  If you have found a bug, fungus or plant that is particularly perplexing or has simply aroused your curiosity, would like to know what it is, what it does and why it bothers,

register here
or phone the Barung office 5494 3151 

Bring it along and be prepared for our panel,

Michelle Gleason (the Bug Lady & author of Miniature Lives),
Frances Guard (co-author of Australian Sub-tropical Fungi),
Wayne Webb (Barung Production Nursery Manager, yet to publish),

to astound you with their brilliance and breadth of knowledge.

You will have 5 minutes with the panel member of choice who will (hopefully) identify your specimen and tell you a story about it.
Michelle, Frances and Wayne will each contribute a short presentation at the end of the morning about the species you've brought in and suggest some context for their presence in the landscape at this time of the year.

Cost is $5/category (bug or fungus or plant).  You may bring up to three specimens in each category.

Morning Tea will be provided

This workshop is supported by the Burnett Mary Regional Group, through funding from the Australian Government's National Landcare Programme.
