The BBG Volunteer Guides invite FBBGSA members
Dr Margaret Cook will be presenting her book
A River with a City Problem is a compelling history of floods in the Brisbane River catchment, especially those in 1893, 1974 and 2011. Extensively researched, it highlights the force of nature, the vagaries of politics and the power of community. With many river cities facing urban development challenges, Dr Cook makes a convincing argument for what must change to prevent further tragedy.
Where: Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mt Coot-tha Auditorium, Mt Coot-tha Rd, Toowong
