Back at the Lab: Fungi Identification Workshop
To identify fungi you need to use a microscope to look at their spores and other morphological features. Learn how to identify fungi in this mycology workshop with Sandra and Wayne.
Citizen Science Panel
Citizen science allows everyday people to make contributions to research and scientific data through a variety of projects. Find out about citizen science applications in Queensland and how you can get involved in your community.
Create fungi gardens around planted trees, using logs and mulch. Learn about the essential role decomposer fungi play in ecosystems and how to help them to fulfil their key function.
Funky Fungi and Other Life Quest
Fungi are the super-heroes of decomposition, plant nutrition and regeneration. Join a quest to discover Woodfordia’s fungal diversity and learn about their smooth and funky ways.
Reversing Climate Change with Fungi
Fungi are a unique group of organisms capable of changing the world. Some groups of fungi are able to sequester atmospheric carbon, with the potential to rapidly reverse climate change. Sandra will demonstrate how citizen scientists can discover and isolate carbon sequestering species of fungi through collaborative efforts with scientists, Soil C Quest and Woodfordia.
Woodfordia’s BioDiscovery Project
Celebrate biodiversity conservation through citizen science engagement in the BioDiscovery Project. Become a BioDiscovery Scientist, immerse yourself in quests with conservation scientists and workshops in the DiscoveryLab venue. Gather scientific data by taking pictures on your phone of any creature, plant or fungi you come across and submit it through the free QuestaGame app for mapping and identification. Find out more at the Forest Woodfordia and DiscoveryLab venues. The BioDiscovery Project is proudly supported by Advance Queensland through the Queensland Government.
