Pryor's Snow Gum

Congratulations to everyone involved in the very successful Black Mountain Symposium; we have been receiving very positive comments about it.

Now we are looking at our next activity … Our wonderful weeders removed about 185 woody weeds at the last work party and now we are looking forward to our next weeding work party on Saturday 1 September 2018.

It is a special one to remove Hawthorn weeds from the area near Pryor’s notable Snow Gums at the Glenloch Interchange, a core conservation area 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 Lindsay Pryor and JCC Banks.

When: Saturday 1 September 9.00 am to 12.00 noon.

Black MountainMeet: At the stile on the fence of Aranda Snow Gums at the corner of William Hovell and Caswell Drives (see map below). Park your car near Black Mountain Reserve Car Park.

If driving from Civic or the south towards Belconnen; follow the brown signs at Glenloch Interchange and turn right towards the car park. If coming from Belconnen; drive from the intersection of William Hovell Drive and Bindubi Street towards the city, follow the brown sign at Glenloch Interchange and turn left towards the car park.

Bring: Enthusiasm, your family and friends, water, (and your favourite pruning saw and/or loppers, if you wish). Everyone is welcome.

Wear: Hat, sunscreen, long-sleeved shirt, long pants, gloves, stout shoes.

Our delicious morning tea will be about 10.30am
