What's On

 Group Activity: Bushwalk at Agnes Banks Reserve

Date:Saturday 26 September  2020
Time: 2:00 pm - 4.00 pm

To register for the walk email apsparrahills@gmail.com


BUSHWALK AT AGNES BANKS RESERVE


The last two bushwalks have been very popular with members. It has been decided to hold another bushwalk on Saturday 26 September instead of our scheduled members’ meeting.

We have chosen Agnes Banks Reserve, a critically endangered vegetation community as the location to continue our current interest in endangered plants. This is a low woodland community occurring on windblown sand from ancient river systems with Scribbly Gum (Eucalyptus sclerophylla), Narrow-leaved Apple (Angophora bakeri) and Old Man Banksia (Banksia serrata) as the dominant canopy trees. Diverse understorey shrubs include Wallum Banksia (Banksia aemula), Banksia oblongifolia, Coneseed (Cononspermum taxifolium), Wedding Bush (Ricinocarpos pinifolius), Showy Parrot Pea (Dillwynia sericea) and Nodding Geebung (Persoonia nutans).

The reserve is totally flat with mostly sandy paths. Walking here will not be physically taxing. There is so many plants to see that the walking pace will be really slow.

 Group Activity: Visit to Mother Earth Nursery

Date:Saturday 24 October  2020
Time: 9.30 am - 11.30 am

VISIT TO MOTHER EARTH NURSERY


We will be meeting at Mother Earth Nursery, 1A Annangrove Road, Kenthurst to hear the owner Mark Massey talk about Unusual Australian Plants and to view the Nursery.

The Nursery is well known in the Hills for its eclectic range of plants in a truly delightful setting. You will find Mark and engaging and well informed speaker.

Please note the change of time. This is for members convenience as parking later on Saturday can be difficult.
