Guest speaker BRIAN BAINBRIDGE is an Ecological Restoration Planner investigating the Victorian Volcanic Plains and has worked for many years with the Merri Creek Management Committee.

He retired last year as President of the Indigenous Flora and Fauna Association and has had an award winning suburban garden. This indigenous garden attracted a diversity of wildlife and was a valuable habitat link to nearby bushland.

His topic for the AGM will be, “ Pollination Pathways- Plant Conservation “ This topic is very relevant to the  sustainability of our environment and a reminder of the significance of growing local plants.
