In the last 200 years Australia has lost around one third of its rainforests
Join Cathy Offord, Principal Research Scientist at the Australian PlantBank, to learn and explore their ongoing Rainforest Conservation Project and see how they are developing unconventional methods to store rainforest seeds that don’t tolerate conventional seed banking.
Go behind-the-scenes and get close to the science of seed banking, an insurance policy against extinction of plants. You will get to see areas of the PlantBank never seen by the general public, and enjoy a day at the Australian Botanic Garden.
Transport via coach included, with a coach departing from Western Concourse Coach Terminal, Central Station Sydney.
If you would like to join but don't want to join the group on the coach, please contact the Foundation & Friends office on 02 9231 8182
Morning tea will be provided. Please bring your lunch to enjoy in the beautiful surrounds of the Australian Botanic Garden.
