A new committee for the Australian Plant Society South East group has been elected and has organised some great outings and talks for 2017. First up is a talk on the flowers of summer.
Members of the committee will demonstrate the beautiful native flowers that are in their gardens at the moment using state-of-the-art technology to allow them to project clear pictures of even the tiniest flowers. Meet at the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens at 10am on Saturday, February 4.
To give an example of the society’s outings, their last walk was to forests west and north of Batemans Bay. After a visit to Cliff Williams’ garden, they drove along Western Distributor Road stopping at quite a few sites to observe varied understorey plants as the aspect changed.
They then moved on through Clyde State Forest towards Mogood Lookout. The lookout offered impressive views north across the Pigeon House Range. After Shallow Crossing, they drove along Barkshed Road to a recently logged site, discussing pros and cons of that activity.
