The introduction of Zoom for monthly meetings during the Coronavirus pandemic opened new opportunities for arranging speakers from further afield. This format also proved popular during the winter months, avoiding travel on wintry evenings.
Since restrictions have been eased, the CFNC Committee has decided to continue to hold meetings online using Zoom during the winter months (June-August) but to return to the Uniting Church Hall for in-person meetings for other months. Excursions are also now being held again, on the Saturday following the monthly talks. Details of the meetings and the excursions are provided in the monthly newsletter, the Castlemaine Naturalist, and on the Activities page on this website.
