APS NSW November Quarterly Gathering

The North Shore Group will host the final APSNSW Quarterly Gathering for 2017. The event will be at Caley’s Pavilion in the Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden at 420 Mona Vale Rd, St Ives, on 18th November 2017.

The guest speaker will be Bronwen Roy. Bronwen is a PhD student at Western Sydney University studying the impact of pathogens on honeybees and native bees. Bronwen was the winner of the University’s 2016 Three Minute Thesis competition. She will be speaking about Australian native bees.

Our November gathering is perfect for this talk as the date is during Australian Pollinator Week which is from 12 - 19 November 2017. More information on Australian Pollinator Week will be available on www.beesbusiness.com.au closer to the date

Tea and coffee will be available from 10.30am. Go for a self-guided walk in the extensive grounds – maps available from the Visitors Centre near the Garden entrance. A guided walk will start at Caleys at 11am and go for about 1 hour. Lunch (bring your own) and plant sales from 12 noon. The Meeting begins at 2pm, followed by afternoon tea.
We hope to see you there.
