Presented by Colin Harris

We all treasure our childhood memories and where we grew up usually looms large in those memories. For Colin Harris it was the Burnside foothills and in revisiting that childhood he can tell us much of how Burnside has changed over the many intervening decades.

Colin is a third generation resident of Burnside and a past President of the BHS. He is currently Co-Editor of the Society’s Newsletter. Retired, he spent three decades of his working life in the South Australian Environment Department where he was responsible for the protection of a number of aspects of our natural and cultural heritage.

All welcome. No charge. Refreshments provided.
