Stinging Trees - Botany, Hazards and Treatments by Paul Hinkley

As bushwalkers we regularly see stinging trees ("gympie-gympies"), small and large, in rainforests and beside creeks and occassionally get stung through accidental contact.  Some have a mild reaction whereas others have had very severe reactions lasting many hours to days and even weeks. Paul Hinkley has researched the botany, hazards, toxicology and treatments and has canvassed advice and opinion from experts.  He will present his finding at this BBW meeting. You will find the topic interesting from a naturalist's perpective as well as being very important to your personal health and safety.  Walk leaders should be especially familar with the topic. In the meantime, if any members have stinging tree experiences you would like to share, please contact Paul by phone or email (Details can be found under the "Member Search" on the website).  

Please join us at Newmarket Memorial Hall, corner of Enoggera Road and Ashgrove Avenue, Newmarket (Map).
