Tree Walk (11/08/2019)

Michael Doherty will be leading an information packed walk.

Join local plant ecologist Michael Doherty as we take a walk through the woodlands of Mount Majura, looking at the characteristics of the common eucalypts and shrubs.

Learn how to distinguish between Red Box, Apple Box, Yellow Box, Blakely’s Red Gum, Scribbly Gum and Brittle Gum. We will also see some relict Snow Gums in the saddle between Mt Majura and Mt Ainslie. On the way, we will hear of the ways that plants cope with drought and fire.

When: Sunday 11th August, from 2pm to 4pm.

Where: Nature park entrance, Mackenzie Street nature park entrance roughly opposite Grayson Street Hackett; view this map.

Wear and bring: Sun protection, appropriate clothing for the weather sturdy shoes; drinking water.

Drooping She-oak, Allocasuarina verticillata, female flowers and seed cone

Tree guides will be available at the walk for a gold coin donation – the donations support the conservation work that Friends of Mt Majura carry out on the mountain.

No booking required.
