The MCCG Annual General Meeting will be held at the Brookfield Showground Hall on Thursday 28th November, starting at 7.30pm.
Our guest speaker for the evening is Queensland Herbarium Senior Ecologist, Dr Melinda Laidlaw.
Melinda has a PhD in rainforest ecology and since commencing work at the Herbarium in 2005, she has worked on regional ecosystem mapping, vegetation condition assessment, carbon farming and species distribution modelling.

Melinda’s presentation will provide information on weed ecology, surveillance and priority weed identification.
Attendees will also learn how to use the Weed Spotters App and how to collect and preserve specimens for sending to the Queensland Herbarium for identification.
