ANNUAL WILDFLOWER EXCURSION IS ON SUNDAY OCTOBER 20
The cool damp spring has created ideal conditions for wildflowers around Busselton, perfect timing for the Busselton Naturalists Club’s annual wildflower excursion this coming Sunday October 20.
The southern half of Ambergate Reserve is ablaze with colour, thanks to the prescribed burn in the south east section in May last year and a burn in the south west section two years earlier.
In particular, the display of coral vine along Doyle Road is outstanding.
We’ll also be visiting a secret wildflower location passed on by Andrew Webb, a botanist with the Department of Parks and Wildlife.
Located in the Whicher Range National Park, the secret site off Sue’s Road carries a diverse range of plants, many of which are quite different to those growing in the Ambergate Reserve.
A bus will leave the Peel Terrace carpark of the former visitor centre – now the Central Queensland University offices – at 9.00am but seats need to be booked as the Club’s wildflower excursion is always popular.
The excursion is open to the public and walks from one to three kilometres will form part of the day’s activities.
Cost is $15 per adult and $5 per school-aged child, with the excursion suitable for families.
Seats can be booked by emailing Bernie Masters on firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone to 9727 2474.
Please bring morning and afternoon teas, a picnic lunch and a folding chair.
President, Busselton Naturalists Club
