Wattle Walk

Friday, September 15, 2017 - 09:30 to 12:00

Enjoy a Walk among the Wattles on Black Mountain with local plant conservationist. Let’s learn to identify some of the common Acacias found on Black Mountain, including Acacia dealbata and Acacia buxifolia. We will also learn about how Acacias cope with fire and drought. The walk will mostly be flat to undulating, but with a few steeper sections later on in the walk.

Some relevant booklets will be for sale.
