Wattle we see on another of our popular walks?
The floral emblem for Australia is Acacia pycnantha (Golden Wattle). It does not grow in Black Mountain Nature Reserve, but several other acacia species make September a great wattle month for us.
Let's enjoy a ramble among the Wattles on Black Mountain with local plant ecologist, Michael Doherty. Let’s learn more about 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.
Because of current circumstances numbers are limited.
Some relevant booklets will be for sale at the event, including Black Mountain a natural history of a Canberra icon.
