Owing to flood damage in the John Taylor Room, we have a temporary venue for the November meeting & AGM:

Kilmore Soldiers Memorial Hall

14 Sydney Street, Kilmore.

Meeting commencing 7:30 pm.  

Chris Cobern will be joining us to present ‘Wildlife in our Backyards’. The talk will focus on some of the things people can do to attract wildlife to their properties, including some of the local flora that can be planted in your garden to provide food and shelter for our native animals.  Chris has worked for Landcare since 2009; as a Landcare Coordinator for the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network, and as the Upper Merri Landcare Facilitator since October 2021, where he is focused on increasing community natural resource management activities in the Upper Merri and the upper Plenty communities.   Do come along for what will be an informative and most interesting talk.

Our usual, brief, no fuss AGM will form part of the evening.  

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

Meetings at the John Taylor Room will be held under the guidelines of our Covid safe facility plan.  Please read the plan prior to attending, & RSVP to Ian Julian to assist in managing numbers (details below).  Masks may also be required, so please bring one with you.

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).
