August 30 Wildflower Excursion
Sunday August 30 sees the Busselton Naturalists Club holding its first wildflower excursion for the year.
Three short walks will take participants through three different types of native vegetation and highlight the diversity of native plants occurring in the south west.
A one kilometre walk through the south east block of the Ambergate Reserve will show the abundance of wildflowers that have returned to this area which was prescribed burnt in 2018.
A two kilometre walk through Ken Cuthbert’s privately owned bshland in Kaloorup will show the influence of the Whicher Range vegetation along the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Finally, a five kilometre walk through a section of jarrah forest in the Whicher Ranges will provide the opportunity for people to see plant species not usually found of the Swan Coastl PLain.
A bus will take people on this excursion and participants need to book a seat at a cost (payable on the day) of $15.
Interested people will need to bring morning and afternoon teas plus a picnic lunch and a folding chair.
