Rare Plant Survey

Date: 

4 Oct 2014 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Mount Majura Nature Reserve is home to a number of rare and endangered plant species, some endemic to the ACT and some at their range distribution limit in the Territory.

What are they and where are they?

Join Dr. Michael Mulvaney, ACT Conservation, Planning and Research for a survey of Mount Majura’s rare plants.

Information from surveying the presence and abundance of rare plants within the nature reserve will guide management, planning, development and conservation decisions. For instance the finding of protected plant species at the Majura paddocks had been considered important for the decision to return the paddocks to nature reserve.

Pictures of some of the listed rare plant species are available at Canberra Nature Map and the Rare Plant Gallery.
