The handle, from a Cyathea cunninghamii (Slender Tree-fern) frond is from the rainforest by the creek.

We used the Cyathea cunniinghamii because we want to show people how special and important these beautiful ferns are.

We had to remove a frond, for microscopic identification and hope to honour it in this exhibit.

Slender Tree-ferns are critically endangered and under threat from global warming, deer and logging that is happening right now, less than 20 kilometres from Fish Creek Hall.
