Black Mountain Nature Reserve—A natural history

View of Black Mountain from Mt Ainslie


The 50th Anniversary Book

July 2020 will be the 50th anniversary of Black Mountain being declared a reserve for the purpose of nature conservation; it was the first such reserve declared in the ACT.

To help celebrate this anniversary, the Friends of Black Mountain propose to publish a book on the area’s natural history for release in July 2020.

The book, to be compiled and written by well-known and respected naturalist and author Ian Fraser, will be based on Black Mountain’s biophysical features and scientific values—as detailed in 14 of the background papers presented at the public symposium about Black Mountain held on 24-25 August 2018.

Your sponsorship/donation

The Friends of Black Mountain are seeking financial assistance to support the book’s preparation and publication.

A sponsorship contribution (being an amount of $1,000 or more) will ensure that you or your organisation’s name and/or logo will be prominently acknowledged in the book and in various other forms of media, including our website and order forms.

Donations of amounts less than $1,000 are very welcome as well.

All donors will be acknowledged by name in the book (unless you tell us that you wish your donation to be anonymous).
