Monthly Meeting: Unique and Diverse Flora of Western Australia
2020-03-11 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Western Australia is designated as having one of the most diverse flora communities in the world. This makes it a very fascinating place to visit. But also of interest is why Western Australia’s plants are so different from those we are used to here. Perhaps these very different plants will help us see our native ones in a different light and will garner them more appreciation.
