Sue Davis, Linda Tabe, Ellen Appleby, and Joolie Gibbs will be leading walks or workshops at Wildflowering Cooloola on August 7
By Cooloola Coastcare
The wildflowers of Cooloola are emerging in an array of pinks, purples, yellows and whites. We have artists joining us to help us appreciate the beauty of nature for one special day 8.30am – 4.30pm, Saturday August 7.
The day will include talks and displays at Rainbow Beach Community Hall, field visits to good wildflower sites and a range of workshops. You may learn to draw with natural inks, observe nature closely and record in a journal, or make a booklet of illustrations.
We are also launching a new 56-page booklet of wildflowers and 14 walks around Cooloola for viewing them.
It’s amazing what a range of habitats we have to explore, from open wallum heathland with spikes shooting up from grass trees, to shady rainforests, marshy fens and coastal wetlands, as well as eucalypt forests.
Participants may choose to learn more about native plants, how to make marks on paper, or just enjoy the experience in different natural settings.
Registration for the day is $30, which includes the introductory and informative talks, field visits, lunch and the booklet. Morning and afternoon workshops with artists cost $30 or $40 each.
The event and booklet are sponsored by Cooloola Coastcare and Wild/flower Women, with funding by Bendigo Bank.
