Our inaugural "Celebration of our DRB legends" talk will be given by Kevn Griffiths. He co-founded the DRB in 1974, is the author of "A Field Guide to the Larger Fungi of the Darling Scarp & South West of Western Australia", and our fungi leader. He is still on the committee of the DRB too as the Vice Chair. He will celebrate his 90th birthday in December. He will explain how his life as a naturalist started and the journey he has taken since including his interest in researching the fish, Gambusia affinis; and how he became interested in fungi. Warning: if you've been a long-standing member of the club don't be surprised to see yourself looking much younger in some of his early photos. He still has photos from 1974! He will be bringing his albums for people to look through on the night. It is also the DRB's AGM that night and our Chair will explain the progress the DRB has made in 2018, when we have broken all records for new memberships, total number of memberships, the numbers of people at an excursion and at an evening talk. Even our flora lists have reached impressive new highs. She will also explain the strategies we are putting in place to preserve the expertise of our DRB elders for current and future generations. Please join us and help us acknowledge and celebrate one of our leading DRB elders.
