Do Frogs Really Say 'Ribbit'?
Korumburra Landcare, held a meeting on Tuesday 4th June, where we had a special guest come along and give us her wisdom on all things frogs. Lovely soup and arancini balls with real saffron was served to keep us all warm and happy.
The night was held at Prom Country Cheese, in their warm dining area. Bronwyn and Burke do a magnificent job as hosts, very humble and have big hearts. There were cheese platters for nibbles (and by the looks of the empty platters, the cheeses were well received!) Bronwyn made arancini balls with real saffron from Sandra. Some home made soups were the main meal on a very chilly night, and range of homemade desserts on offer too. We filled our bellies in anticipation for our guest speaker.
Dr Lynette Plenderleith has a massive love for frogs, a wildlife biologist, who has a PhD in Australian Frogs, a Masters Degree in Salamander ecology and a natural knack of interpreting science for the general public. Lynette is the founder and chair person of Frogs Victoria (which is how Korumburra Landcare Group came into contact with her), she is President of Victorian branch of the Australian Science Communicators.
Lynette has a bubbly, energetic personality, she has a vast range of knowledge of frogs from around the world and Australia, yet she communicates on a level that for the whole 75 minutes the 25-30 members were so engaged, they didn’t want the presentation to stop.
