|(NEW!!!) Killara to Gordon Walk. FOKE (Friends of Ku-ring-gai Environment) Event. Discover the remarkable story of Dr Gustavus Athol Waterhouse (1877-1950), famed for his expertise on butterflies. Athol lived close to his famous younger brother - Professor Eben Gowrie Waterhouse whose home and garden ‘Eryldene’ is today one of the most significant and popular house and gardens to visit in Sydney. Athol’s house, ‘Allowrie’ was built in Stanhope Road around 1905. Its memorable gardens were once the site of a magnificent ‘butterfly garden’. It was also near to some of the best butterfly collecting places along the hill top bushland ridges of east Killara. This leisurely walk will wander along Killara’s streetscapes of camellias and blue gums. Perhaps even a butterfly may be spotted? The walk will finish at ‘Eryldene’ where visitors have the option to enter this beautiful camellia garden (entry fee $12 where Eryldene has arranged a special dedicated tour for those interested in joining this tour) or if they wish join a Mother's Day High Tea (bookings essential as this is Eryldene’s busiest day and the celebratory teas need to be pre-booked with Eryldene on (02) 9498 2271 or www.eryldene.org.au). Note the Garden Café will not be open over the Mother’s Day weekend). Bring hat, water & wear good walking shoes. If wet, wear raincoat and bring umbrella. View|

|20 May, Sun 12:45PM||Ku-ring-gai Matters: Time for World Heritage|
|(NEW!!!) FOKE (Friends of Ku-ring-gai Environment) Event. This fundraising luncheon for EDO, NSW opens with the question about whether it might be time to consider world heritage listing Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park - the second national park in NSW in 1894, and one of the first in the world. Madi Maclean, President of the Blue Mountains Conservation Society will highlight the achievement of World Heritage Listing the Greater Blue Mountains in 2000. Bob Crombie from the Sutherland Shire Environment Centre will talk about their current campaign calling to World Heritage list Royal National Park. When Royal was reserved in 1879 it was the first time the words ‘national park’ had ever been used to describe a protected park area. When Yellowstone was formed in the USA in 1872 it was named a national park in the sense that the park was under federal, not State, jurisdiction. In 2017 the English Lake District’s World Heritage status was changed to include the role it played in the development of the conservation movement. This new initiative now opens the door for Royal National Park to be world heritage listed. If this is achieved, then it is timely to call for Ku-ring-gai Chase be World Heritage listed as well. After all Ku-ring-gai was one of the first parks to be formed because of the intrinsic values of nature. Eccleston Du Faur (1832-1915) the driving force behind the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park had no doubts about this when he used these words for the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park seal - Natura Ars Dei or ‘Nature is the Art of God’. Enjoy a light lunch and coffee at the heritage Café Pecorino to raise funds for EDO NSW (Environmental Defenders Office) who continue to provide legal advice to those communities fighting to defend their environment.
