A solid group followed Karen Baker on a trek uphill and down dale across the Chewton bushlands community yesterday. A hilly walk was promised, and delivered: but the climbs proved more than worth the effort, and a fine day offered beautiful views across to the west and south. This area has wonderful old specimens of Red Stringybark and Yellow Box, and it was great to see the recovery of the land exemplified in extensive moss cover and interesting regrowth and restoration bush.
Our thanks to Karen for an inspiring presentation of her home patch, and to Antoinette Birkenbeil for providing a suitable suite of perches for lunch.
Next month’s walk is another over the hills and far away venture above the Expedition Pass reservoir, led by Barb Guerin and Lionel Jenkin. Check the program for details.
