Professor Catherine Pickering from the School of Environment will introduce you to some of the amazing local native plants growing at Griffith University’s Gold Coast Campus. The walk will showcase species that are at risk of extinction in the wild, including the critically endangered local bottle tree, the largest terrestrial orchid in Australia, and a native olive that is down to just 17 plants in the wild. You will also find out about some of our favourite native plants for gardens growing at Griffith University.
