  • THE TETLOW TALK - held at our November meeting, this special talk commemorates our long standing Secretary/Treasurer Eric Tetlow who we lost in 2009. This talk recognises Eric's enormous contribution, not only to our Society, but to other Societies as well and his passion for local and family history, which he shared with anyone seeking his help. It is followed by afternoon tea incorporating some of Eric's favourite delights.

 

  • THE AHERN NATURAL HISTORY AWARD - this award is presented to a graduating student from Yarra Glen Primary School, that has shown an exceptional interest and talent in the field of natural history.  The award honors a former member of the Society, Leigh Ahern and his wife Charmian who were tragically lost in their Steels Creek home on Black Saturday 2009.
    The award commemorates not only the contribution that Leigh and Charmian made to the ecology and conservation of our natural environment, but also the contribution that they made to the community in which they lived. The Society has been assisted in making this award by the generous donations provided by members of the Ahern family, the Ritchie family, the Blythe family and Leigh's colleagues and friends at the Department of Sustainabilty and Environment and the Arthur Rylah Institute.
