It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of our most loved and dedicated founding member, Doug Stuart. Doug died very suddenly on Tuesday morning, 10 September.
Doug, an architect, was a wonderful man whose contribution to this community was immense. He and his wife, Norma, were foundation members of the Bushland Society and he was the backbone of other community organisations. His tireless work helped to keep Lane Cove a beautiful, green place to live.
President, Lane Cove Bushland and Conservation Society.
A message from Ruth about the SPRING NATIVE PLANT SALE in Lane Cove Plaza last Saturday:
Congratulations and a big thank you to everyone! We had a terrific result on Saturday with all plants sold!
As well as the plants our greeting cards were also a great attraction, as was Robbie with his insect hotels. An innovation from Leon was a raffle with his donated prize a beautiful Cordyline Stricta. Another first were our fantastic bags for plants made from re-cycled paper – former maps to be exact – which were sooo gorgeous I didn’t want to use them!
SUN 22 SEPTEMBER 10 – 11.30 am: VENTEMANS REACH GUIDED RIVER & BUSHWALK with MARK WOLFF
On Sunday 22 September Mark Wolff guided a group through the mangrove and saltmarsh vegetation of Venteman’s Reach with ex-President Meron Wilson assisting.
It was a beautiful morning and the walkers learnt about the processes responsible for supporting the vegetation from two very active plant experts. Thank you Meron and Mark for providing this great opportunity once again
Our regular guided SPRING WILDFLOWER BUSHWALK, North Head Sanctuary above Manly on SUN 1 SEPTEMBER was a great success with good weather and 27 participants as well as children. It is an opportunity to see these plants in bloom in a spectacular environment with ocean and harbour views. Join us next year.
