Cork Oak Centenary Celebrations - THANK YOU!

From Trish Keller OAM, Chair of the Friends: My thanks to all the wonderful Friends who made the Cork Oak Celebration yesterday such a wonderful day! The NAC organisers plus the Friends volunteers make a great combination! Thanks to Bronwyn and the Harvest Group who set up and staffed the Market Stall & Friends Marquee all day. Well done everyone ... you are an amazing group!

AAFBG Newsletter

Friends of the National Arboretum Canberra are members of the Australian Association of Friends of Botanical Gardens (the AAFBG held its AGM in Canberra this year and the Friends hosted delegates on Arboretum walks the next day). Eucalypt is the AAFGB bi-annual newsletter produced in May and November and is an important means by which the Association and its members keep in touch. Eucalypt is also an excellent resource document providing news on the ideas, innovation, challenges, events, successes and failures of the members who contribute articles. Information from the Committee's activities, Botanic Gardens of Australia and New Zealand (BGANZ) and other matters of interest to Members are also included. Originally called Campsis, the newsletter was renamed in 2015 to correspond with the AAFBG's new name and logo.
