Friends of the Waite Arboretum Inc.

The Friends of the Waite Arboretum was established at the suggestion of a number of Waite Arboretum Guides in 1994.  The first meeting of the Friends was held on 12th September 1994 in Urrbraee House at the University of Adelaide's Waite campus.  The organisation was incorporated as an business entity in early 1995 and the first Newsletter was produced in Spring 1994.
