Professor Ken McNamara, formerly Senior Curator of Palaeontology at the WA Museum for 30 years, and Director of the world’s oldest geological museum, the Sedgwick Museum in the UK, is giving a talk on "Fossil Plants of the Darling Range". Although much of the rocks of the Darling Range are extremely old and formed before plants evolved, there are a number of rather unusual fossil plant sites on the range that tell the story of the evolution of the flora of the south-west and changing climate conditions over the last 40 million years. He will bring specimens of fossil plants for people to see. This will be a very popular night please come early, only $3 donation for adult members and $5 for adult visitors, which includes refreshments and a possible door prize.
