Acronyms! Never use acronyms in your headings my English Lit instructor use to advise. That was a long time ago though.
Last Friday, Judy, (Friends of Drouin's Trees) presented a powerpoint on The Significant Trees of Drouin project to the Field Nats (Latrobe Valley Field Naturalists Club) at Newborough. The next day we hosted some of the group for a visit to a few of Drouin's beautiful places.
The club were very gracious and effusive in their praise for Judy's delivery and slide show and on Saturday they complimented our group for the tremendous job done so far and wished us all the best for the tasks ahead.
Here are some pictures from the excursion …

The whole exercise might be the beginning of a continuing relationship. The LVFNC have agreed to help out with our Drouin birds monitoring surveys that we plan to commence next month. Their expertise will be most welcome.
