Black Mountain Wildflower Ramble

Date: 

11 Oct 2014 - 9:30am to 12:00pm

Join wildflower lovers for the Burbidge/Chippendale tradition of celebrating the spring flowering with the 43rd annual Black Mountain wildflower ramble. Discover the surprising diversity of tiny orchids, bush peas, wattles and billy buttons with experienced guides. Following the tradition set by Nancy and George, this will be a social occasion with a morning tea break (BYO), relatively easy bush tracks and good company. It will be sponsored by Friends of Black Mountain, NPA, U3A, ANPS, ANBG Friends and Field Nats, and Molonglo Catchment Group. Who knows what spring will bring this year in the 'jewel of the crown of Canberra Nature Park'? It's always fascinating to see how diversity and abundance differ. Our Patch field guide will be on sale for $15 and some handouts provided. All welcome.

When:   Saturday 11 October 2014, 9.30 am sharp to 12 noon (or later)
Where:   Belconnen Way entry, just before Caswell Drive turnoff (look for the balloons).
Bring / wear:   Bring your friends especially those who are new to plant identification. BYO morning tea, hat, sunblock, water and stout shoes.
