12 October 48th Black Mountain wildflower ramble
Celebrate the spring flowering on beautiful Black Mountain with a social ramble for wildflower lovers in the tradition established by Nancy Burbidge, and continued by George Chippendale. Discover the surprising diversity of tiny orchids, bush peas, wattles and billy buttons on easy bush tracks with experienced guides and good company. All springs are not the same. The pattern remains but timing and abundance vary with the weather. Friends of Black Mountain welcomes all comers, be they experts or those who have never slowed down to see the somewhat cryptic diversity. We plan several guides, with helpers, who will take different directions. BYO morning tea, water, hat, sunblock and stout shoes. Booking essential to ensure we have enough guides.
Time: 9:30 am sharp to 12 noon or later
Meet: Belconnen Way entry just before Caswell Drive turnoff – watch for balloons
Please allow time to park and walk to the meeting point.
