You could join the committee (your chance is now with the AGM next Thursday evening) or try something simpler: bring your suggestions to the planning meeting, give a talk or arrange a guest speaker, lead a walk, write an article for the newsletter, grow your favourite native plants for our annual sale or an administrative role; helping out with the agenda or minutes, maintaining mailing lists etc It is your society and we hope that you can help us to keep it strong so we can offer you an interesting and diverse program of events in 2018. Article by Sarah Hirst - President NT Field Naturalist Club Events Meetings are held at 7.45pm on the second Wednesday of each month except January at Blue 2.1.51 (Note this is a new venue) at Charles Darwin University Casuarina Campus. Field Trips are a great way to explore the best of Darwin area's nature spots in the company of likeminded people. These are usually held on the Sunday following the monthly meeting and often related to the topic of this meeting. Additional outings are held from time to time, and everyone is welcome.
