Group Activity - Bushwalk to Lane Cove Bushland Park
For our April activity we are going to Lane Cove Bushland Park. The area of the park we are planning to visit is very different from our usual bushwalk haunts. It is still sandstone country, but this time it is a deep, heavily-shaded gully with a creek running down it. The vegetation type is wet sclerophyll forest. Tall trees, largely turpentines, provide the shade. Underneath these is a different world with a great many ferns and climbers. The understorey features young trees and shrubs, some of which are also found in rainforest. Most of the leaves are larger, greener and softer than those seen along sandstone ridges. This is the park in which Ray and Elma Kearney documented a large number of fungi and found undescribed species. Fungi are ephemeral, sometimes they are there in large numbers, while at other times there are none. Hopefully we will see some fungi, which can be highly coloured, but there is no guarantee. It has been an unusually wet season, so we might be lucky.
Group Meeting - "Plant Propagation from Cuttings"
Our next meeting will feature an interactive, practical session and discussion on Plant Propagation from Cuttings.
