In perfect weather last Sunday a medium sized group started out at Mike Reeves’ property southwest of Elphinstone and completed a 6 km circuit through local bush. Much of the walk was on kangaroo tracks. Highlights were seeing many wattles including Spreading Wattle in flower and large swathes of Hill Flat-pea (formerly named Handsome Flat-pea Platylobium formosum). Frances Cincotta helped with plant identification and Mike shared the produce of his plum and pear trees as well as opening his house to walkers for lunch. Thanks Mike for leading this first walk for the year for FOBIF.
Next month we will have car excursion around Mount Franklin and the Guildford Plateau led by geologist. Clive Willman. See walks page for more detail.
