Mike Williams will be taking us on a pictorial West Australian wildflower journey, covering the 200km from Norseman to Lake King. Mike is a longstanding & 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. He also runs a small native plant nursery from his home in Montmorency and brings plants for sale to our group meetings. Having made numerous field trips to WA, Mike has amassed a wealth of knowledge on WA flora, including prime wildflower hotspots. Do come along for what will be a most engaging evening and be prepared to spend time oohing and aahing at slides of gorgeous wildflowers, whilst hearing tales of Mike’s travels exploring WA’s back roads, byways and flora.
