What we do
Monthly meetings had resumed on the first Thursday of the month at Stony Range Botanic Garden. The members have greatly enjoyed Anne Gray's monthly bushwalks and garden visits and these will continue after lockdown. We enjoy both the excursions and the morning tea or lunch that follows which gives us a relaxing debrief and social time with fellow members.
The beautiful Staghorn (Platycerium bifurcatum) above is still growing well at Stony Range, which remains open.
