The Friends of Mount Majura Wildflower Walk on 3 November will give flower fanciers across the region a chance to enjoy all that spring has to offer in the national capital.
“For those who did not get their fill of flowers at Floriade, local botanist Michael Doherty will lead the walk through grasslands, woodlands and open forest to show off the range of flora around Mount Majura,” said Nina Bruns, Senior Ranger, Urban Reserves, ACT Parks and Conservation Service.
“Anyone with an interest in Australian flora or who is just looking for a nice walk around beautiful Mount Majura should get along.
“The walk will highlight a range of different wildflower species, so be sure to bring a magnifying lens if you have one so you can get up close. Also bring sun protection, water and some good walking shoes to stay comfortable during the walk.
“A new flora list is also available for a gold coin donation.”
Participants should meet at Helms Place Park entrance in Hackett, off Rivett Street just north of the junction with Richards Street at 2 pm. The walk will run for about two hours.
Bookings are not required, just turn up. For more information, visit www.majura.org
