Black Mountain Reserve - Annual Spring Wildflower Ramble

Hosted by: Friends of Black Mountain

Saturday 14 October 2023

This is the 52nd of this annual ramble being held.

The Friends of Black Mountain are organising this popular ramble again this year, following the tradition of Dr Nancy Burbidge, George Chippendale, and Jean Geue.

Dr Nancy Burbidge was a botanist and conservationist, the Curator of <i>Herbarium Australiense</> and a Senior Research Scientist at CSIRO. She was a keen leader of numerous weekend walks and initiated the Spring Wildflower Rambles on Black Mountain. After Nancy became ill, George Chippendale, a eucalyptus enthusiast, continued that tradition for many years. When he retired from guiding the walks, he handed over to Jean Geue, who has asked the Friends of Black Mountain to coordinate this very enjoyable activity.

BYO morning tea, water, hat, sunblock and stout shoes
