What we do
The Northern Beaches Group meets regularly at Stony Range Botanic Garden where the beautiful Staghorn (Platycerium bifurcatum) on the right is growing.
Anne Gray keeps our schedule of monthly outings intriguing with a mix of bushwalks and garden visits. The Quarterly and Get-together events of the Australian Plants Society are also well attended by our members.
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.
Sadly, the following Schedule of Meetings and Activities has been seriously curtailed by the CORVID-19 control regulations regarding gatherings. I will update the cancellations when they become definite. Hopefully we will be able to resume our activities later in the year. D.D.
