Bush Heritage hosted an information stall at this year Ecofest run to coincide with world environment day and set in the stunning setting of the Gladstone botanical gardens.

Organisers reported 15,000 visitors came through on the day and it felt like the majority of these visited the Bush Heritage stand by the end of the day with all of the merchandise carted away and a couple of dry staff throats looking for refreshment. 

A touch table put together by Mat McLean with his collection of animal sculls, snake skins, rocks and other things of interest collected from his varied reserves stints was the honey pot that drew the kids in, while staff good looks and raconteur did the rest for the adult audience!!!  

A full day of yarning to interested folks about our work across QLD but there was little doubt the recently opened Paper Bark Forest Walk at Reedy Creek claimed a lot of interest from the locals.  The  organizational messages captured in the forest walk interpretive signage will hopefully continue to spark interest and support regionally and nationally.
