Topic: Further adventures of Barney & Willy- Yalgoo to Lake King WA.

Mike is a longstanding and very active member of APS Mitchell, APS Yarra Yarra and APS Victoria, having served on Yarra Yarra group’s executive committee in various roles over a number decades, and in the past on APS Victoria Growth and Development committees.  It was during his time on the Development Committee that Mike was a key facilitator in establishing our group, and has continued to mentor and support us ever since.  He also runs a small native plant nursery from his home in Montmorency, regularly bringing plants for sale to our group meetings.  Among Mike’s other talents is a prodigious knowledge on native plants and the gift of the gab, which, makes for a thoroughly enjoyable presentation chock full of information.  For this month’s talk, Mike will take us along on another Barney and Willy adventure to WA, this time with fellow travellers Robert and Carmen Cooper (also members of APS Yarra Yarra.  The group travelled in early spring last year, and ventured as far northward as Yalgoo and down to Lake King in the south. 

Do come along for a fine evening full of slides of wonderful wildflowers and hearing tales of travels and what can be found exploring WA’s back roads, byways and flora. 

Evening presentations are followed by the evening Door Prize plant raffle, flower specimen table discussion & conclude with time for supper & chat.  

Visitors, guests and friends are always very welcome at APS Mitchell meetings.  Attendees are encouraged to bring along native plant specimens from their gardens for our Specimen Table display & discussion (please label with species name if known).
