The Annual show is just around the corner. This is our major activity for the year, and will be held on September 22 and 23.
Annual Wildflower Weekend & Art Show
A few extra features have been added this year, including a live, interactive reptile display. We will also be making some places on the popular nature walks available for pre-booking, to accommodate those unable to get to the show early enough on the day to obtain tickets. Full details of the program, including entry forms for the Art Show and nature walk pre-booking information, are available on here.
We are always looking for volunteers to help with the show. Meeting and working with other members can be a very enjoyable experience. Setting up takes place on Thursday 21 and Friday 22, so if you could assist on these days or on the weekend please call Helen Tutt on 5263 1227
Tell your friends about the show, the wonderful displays of indigenous flowers, the guided walks, the indigenous plant on sale and much more.
