BUSHWALK AT WATEGORA RESERVE (DUCK RIVER) SOUTH GRANVILLE

Saturday 22 August 2pm

Continuing our theme of looking for rare and endangered species this walk has been planned to visit Wategora reserve when the Acacia pubescens (Downy Wattle) plants will be flowering.

Wategora Reserve is a relatively intact 11 hectare bushland reserve. Botanically it is the richest area in the eastern part of Sydney’s Cumberland Plain with some 264 species recorded. Cumberland Pain communities grew on the fertile soils cleared in the Sydney Basin for farming and later suburban developments. The NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service (2002) estimated that prior to European settlement the vegetation community covered an area of almost 130,000 ha.  It now covers less than 9,000 ha which equates to a loss of 93% of the entire woodland community

It will be a new experience for some members to walk in this type of plant community as our walks have tended to be held on Hawkesbury Sandstone country where there is a stunning floral diversity.

Hopefully members will find the Cumberland Plain vegetation just as interesting.

Numbers for the walk are limited so to book your place, contact Jennifer Farrer boronia.jf@gmail.com
