On 6 April, the Society marked its return to face-to-face events at the State Library of NSW after two years of restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic with the 1302nd Ordinary General Meeting at which Professor Ben Eggleton FRSN FAA FTSE of the University of Sydney delivered a stimulating talk on “New frontiers in smart sensor technology for a healthier, safer and sustainable future”, with the recording of his talk now available on YouTube.

In May, there were two events. The first of these was the Poggendorff Lecture for 2020, delayed by one year due to the pandemic.  Presented jointly by the Society and UNSW Sydney at the Palm House of the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney, Professor Angela Moles FRSN from UNSW Sydney delivered a fascinating talk titled  “Are our weeds becoming new native species?”, which is now available on YouTube.  

Later that month, on 18 May, the Western NSW Branch of the Society presented its second lecture for the year from the Wagga Wagga Campus of Charles Sturt University, which was also live-streamed via Zoom.  Dr Colin Pardie FRSN, a biological anthropologist and archaeologist, delivered a most engaging talk on “Making a living on the plains — Stone tools and archaeology of Aboriginal societies”, which is now available on YouTube.
