 AGM and Meeting with speaker: Linda Groom on ' Save Kosci walk'

Date:Saturday 23 February 2019
Time: 2 pm - 4 pm
 Venue:Gumnut Hall, Gumnut Place, Cherrybrook    see map

As Convenor of Save Kosci Incorporated, a not for profit association, Linda Groom organised a protest walk from Sydney to the summit of Kosciuszko. The walk sought strong action to control environmental damage by wild horses in Kosciuszko National Park. Save Kosci Incorporated was a short-lived organisation formed solely to organise the walk. Its campaign work is being continued by Reclaim Kosci, a program of the Invasive Species Council, for which Linda works as a volunteer. Linda is also currently Walks Secretary of the Canberra Bushwalking Club. She makes no claims to being a botanist, but is a great admirer of Australian plants.

 Meeting with speakers: Ray and Elma Kearney on
'Cooperation between Plants Animals and Fungi in Nature'

Date:Saturday 27 April 2019
Time: 2 pm - 4 pm
 Venue:Gumnut Hall, Gumnut Place, Cherrybrook  see map

In April we have guest speakers Ray and Elma Kearney who will tell us about Cooperation between Plants Animals and Fungi in Nature. Ray and Elma call themselves “citizen scientists” and have discovered numerous new species over the years during their weekly bushwalks. This includes nine new species of mushrooms as well as two new species of wasp. Hopefully, if we are blessed with good autumn rains, we will also have the opportunity to join a Lane Cove fungi-spotting bushwalk in May to follow their talk.
