April 22: At home in the Wallum
22 April 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$5
Former Noosa mayor Noel Playford will talk about Noosa’s newest community website Noosa Matters at Friday Environment Forum on April 22 and share his motivation for developing this site. Editor Ric Jay said: “Noosa Matters is a place for the community of Noosa to question and discuss where we are, where we want to go and how best to get there.”
Noel’s talk will be followed by a photographic journey “At Home in the Wallum”. Di Shun Wah lives beside the wallum on the edge of Noosa National Park and she will highlight her experiences of the plant and wildlife that thrives in this nutrient-poor, acidic, sandy soil. Seasonal changes in the water table due to rainfall may create swamps, and this year with unusually high rainfall has been a perfect example.
