Society for Native Plants Queensland (NPQ)

The Caboolture Daytime Branch of the Native Plants Queensland (Previously SGAP) was begun in 1997 by enthusiastic residents keen to see more native plants in the district.

The branch is mainly interested in propagating plants that are endemic to the Caboolture District because these species will give the best results when placed in private gardens or public plantings. Meetings are held every Tuesday either at the Community Nursery at Caboolture Region Environmental Education Centre (CREEC) for propagation work, or once a month at a different location to extend knowledge of local plant species and hold plant identification walks.

The branch has formed a working association with the Myall Park Botanic Garden, west of Dalby. This is the site of the late David Gordon's magnificent arid land plant collection, which features many grevilleas.

Membership is open to anyone interested in having fun and friendship together while learning about, and helping to achieve, a greater appreciation of Australia's wonderful native plants. ‑ Edgar Askew
