9.30am—12.00 noon

You have driven past Black Mountain many times, and may have walked its trails, but what are its botanic treasures?

Join local botanist, Dr Rosemary Purdie, to walk and talk about this iconic reserve and its key characteristics for the conservation movement. The Woodland Walk Flora Interpretation Signage project was supported with funding made available by the ACT Government under the ACT Heritage Grants Program in 2016/17. Generally easy ramble with some steep sections, rough uneven ground, and steps.

Oh, and if you would like to hear more about the mountain’s treasures, register for the Black Mountain symposium, 24-25 August!
