Hello FoP Member Groups

Enid Robertson’s family have asked that I let some conservation and botanical friends of Enid know that Enid Robertson died this past Sunday, July 10, 2016, succumbing to the effects of cancer.

She was an excellent botanist, taxonomist, field naturalist, contributor of specimens to the Herbarium and a volunteer in botanical matters for many volunteer groups for decades.

The depth and breadth of her commitment to nature conservation, management of native vegetation, and to community education was profound.

She was a good woman and her botanical friends will miss her dearly.

There will not be a funeral. A memorial will be held in a few weeks time.

I know that Enid was a Life Member of Friends of Parks and Patron for several groups. I would like to pass this message on to the relevant Friends Groups.
