Conserving a notable Snow Gum in high traffic

Sunday 15 April 2018

9.30am—12.00 noon

Join local conservationist Jean Geue and discover the Snow Gums at Glenloch Interchange, a core conservation site in the midst of high volume traffic. This small area of Snow Gum Woodland includes an ancient tree that is listed as a notable tree in “Trees and Shrubs of Canberra” by Pryor and Banks. There were protests that caused change to the Glenloch Interchange to save it.

This ramble is across rough uneven ground.

Oh, if you want to hear more about protests, register for the Black Mountain symposium, 24 & 25 August, also!
