New Newsletter

Jan has produced Newsletter No. 52 – our first since COVID.  It brings us up to date with reports and lots of pictures of the ’21 and ’22 field trips and the social trip mentioned below. Go to the Publications page or download it here.

2023 Social Trip

A pleasant social trip to Cantara in the Coorong National Park took place in April.  We joined our colleagues from Friends of the Simpson Desert (FOS) and enjoyed some nice eating, drinking, exploring, catching-up and maintenance work around the homestead.  We are planning to repeat this experience in 2024.

2023 Field Trip

The 2023 field trips in and around Mamungari have been completed.  Reports will appear later on the Field Trips page.

2022 Field Trips

Two successful field trips took place in August, involving vegetation photopoints, drone vegetation monitoring and a quondong survey.  The trip reports can be found on the Field Trips page.
