The Society for Kimberley Indigenous Plants and Animals
is a group for Kimberley People who want to do any of the following;
Grow your own native plants
Promote sustainable and environmentally friendly gardening practices.
Learn more about Kimberley plants and animals
Participate in Kimberley field trips
Advance the knowledge about Kimberley plants and animals
Collect herbarium specimens
Contribute to community and environment,
Restore degraded sites and address environmental threats
We meet most Tuesday afternoons from 4.30 at Kimberley Training Institute (the old Broome TAFE) horticultural compound. We also go on semi-regular field trips throughout the Kimberley, mostly during school holidays and long weekends. You don’t have to be located in Broome; this is for all of you flora and fauna nuts in the Kimberley. Get online, swap germination techniques, share photographs, ask for help with plant or animal identification and post stories about your group’s floristic excursions or fauna sightings. We’d love to hear from you!
At the moment this site is a written multi-contributor blog, so if you want to do more than just comment you have to email us to become an author which allows you to post photos and stories. Otherwise, just contact us and we’ll post them for you.
