The Friends advise that they are currently supporting the development of 'PlantBank' - an environmental insurance plan for the nation's plant life. Apart from becoming involved through guest speakers or group tours of current lab facilities (at Mt Annan); we can help by making a tax deductible donation or host a fundraising event.  More information on 9231 8182 or nicky.hammond@rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au  or www.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/friends
