BUSHWALK AT NEICH RD GLENORIE SATURDAY 25 JULY AT 1.30 PM
The aim of the bushwalk is to look for and inspect the population of Acacia gordonii to be found there. This species is listed as endangered. There are patches of it in some lower areas of the Blue Mountains National Park, although how much of it burnt in the huge summer bushfires is unknown. The only other occurrences are in Glenorie and Maroota. It tends to grow in small scattered patches, such as the one we will see. A small part of the area has been burnt previously, but none during the fires last summer. It is a small wattle, usually about 1m high, and has very bright gold flowers.
The walk is quite short and easy. After an initial short rocky rise, it is along a fairly flat fire trail. It is an interesting area of sandstone ridge top, and there should be plenty of other species flowering. A beautiful mauve version of Philotheca salsolifera grows there.
As numbers for outdoor activities are restricted to 20 participants, bookings are essential for this bushwalk. Bookings are to be made with Pip Gibian, either by email to email@example.com or by phone 9651 1962. The meeting place will be advised when you book.

GROUP MEETING 22 AUGUST AT 2 PM “TRIUMPHS AND PROBLEMS”
This will be the group’s first meeting since the COVID-19 restrictions were implemented. We are looking forward to welcoming members in person again.
Members are encouraged to bring along a specimen or a photo on a USB stick of the best plants in flower in their gardens in August. We will also have an opportunity to bring up any problems we are having in our gardens which can be solved by the combined knowledge of the Group.
We also plan to discuss the endangered plants in our area as a follow up to our July bushwalk. We will discuss the possibility of selecting some species to propagate and grow in our gardens.
As usual there will be plants for sale.
The meeting will adhere strictly to current COVID-19 restrictions. Members are encouraged to wear masks and gloves for the protection of themselves and others. The current restrictions also mean that there will be no afternoon tea.
Numbers are limited so please book if you wish to attend firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Jennifer on 0407 456 577
