Dedicated to promoting the growing and conservation of Aussie natives in gardens, community areas and in their original environments, The Australian Plants Society Wilson Park (Berwick) Inc. hold monthly meetings with a speaker on a variety of topics that are plant and garden related. They also have a monthly working bee at the Wilson Park garden. Their emblem 'The Running Postman' (Kennedia prostrata) is indigenous to the area and is a nectar source for butterflies and a food source for caterpillars.
