A walk on Black Mountain with George Chippendale

Meet at the Belconnen Way entry to Black Mountain Nature Reserve, just before Caswell Drive turnoff (look for the balloons). Celebrate the diversity of spring wildflowers in the 41st annual Burbidge/Chippendale walk with Peter Ormay, Laurie Adams, Isobel Crawford and Jean Geue. Following the tradition set by Nancy and George Chippendale, this will be a social occasion with a morning tea break (BYO), relatively easy grades and good company. It may also be sponsored by NPA, U3A, ANPS and Field Nats. Who knows what spring will bring this year in this very special reserve. It's always fascinating to see how diversity and abundance differ. And there's been strange flowering this year. All welcome. Please bring your friends, especially those who are new to plant identification. BYO morning tea, hat, sunblock, water and stout shoes. Contact Jean on 6251-1601 and please book on friendsofblackmountain@gmail.com  so we have an idea of numbers.
