The Darling Range Branch is a small group who focus mainly on their Herbarium which house specimens from the Shire of Kalamunda. Nearly 400 species are found within the collection. The group have recently adopted a small reserve next to the Old Guide Hall (known as the Friends of Paxhill Reserve). The group also meet for regular wildflower walks. The group also has plant sales and tend to a native garden around the Guide Hall.
