March 6th (first one for 2017

Leader: Alec Fisher
Topic: ‘Introductory Talk and Walk at Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden’
Background:

Leptospermum square flowers

The opening talk and subsequent walk will introduce you to the Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden and its many aspects and attractions and to Australian native plants themselves.
Leptospermum squarrosum is one of Sydney’s beautiful native plants. Although the peak flowering period for our native plants is in late winter and spring, some plants are in flower in midsummer. It is one of the plants that will be seen when the “Walks and Talks” program at Kuringgai Wildflower Garden recommences at 10 am Monday (7th March). This program, run throughout the year by North Shore Group of Australian Plants Society, is a unique opportunity for members of the general public to learn about the native plants that occur in the Sydney region. A talk of about 45 minutes is followed by a 1 hour walk in the Garden. No booking is necessary.

March 13th

Leader: Alec Fisher
Topic: ‘The Plant Kingdom’
Background:

Flower with insects on it

The world is green because of plants and because of flowering ones in particular. Plants, through photosynthesis, are the very staff of life, though not the first of the five Kingdoms to come into being. Plants and the other Kingdoms do not exist in isolation but depend on each other? this includes us humans as members of the Animal Kingdom.

Join with Alec on this behind-the-scenes look into plants.
