Bushcare's Day Out - Sun 8 Sept

Bushcare's Major Day Out - Sun 8 Sept 09:00 am – 01:00 pm

This will be a partly hands on and partly an opportunity to enjoy a native grassland.
We will be planting endangered Showy podolepis as the hands on component of the event. This will be followed by a wildflower walk.
We should enjoy an impressive display of grassland wildflowers, including two Ptilotis species P. Spathulatus & P. Macrocephalus (Featherheads). There should be native Erodium as well as a few other wildflowers on display.

We plan to meet at 9am at entrance, plant wildflowers (which are endangered in Victoria) have morning tea break, followed by an early spring wildflower walk.

What to bring

Participants can bring a magnifying glass, binoculars, butterfly net and wear sturdy shoes.  Wear hats & long sleeves in sunny weather. Water is a personal option if it is a hot day.
