Summit Ramble

Saturday 24 July 2021, 01:30pm - 04:00pm

Dear Friends and colleagues,

We hope you are keeping wonderfully warm in winter… we are looking forward to our next Walk, because July is not only the anniversary month of the declaration of Black project between ACT Government, Australian National Botanic Gardens (ANBG), and Telstra. 

The details are as follows ... and feel free to send to your other friends and networks ... 

 

Summit Ramble  Saturday 24 July 2021,

9.30am (sharp) to 12.00 noon (approximately)

OR

1.30pm (sharp) to 4.00pm (approximately)

 

The Summit Walk, a joint initiative between the ACT Government, the Australian National Botanic Gardens (ANBG) and Telstra, was officially opened on 26 July 2000.

 

Join our ANBG Guides, and FoBM guide Michael Doherty, a local plant ecologist, to hear about some of the winter flowering plants in the gardens and on the mountain as well as other plants during a ramble up the north-eastern slopes from the clock near the ANBG entry bridge up to the Summit of Black Mountain. Michael will also be talking about some very old trees (with ‘elephants’ feet’?), and how trees and shrubs that show scars and rejuvenation cope with fire.

 

Choose your time, please.

 

Participants are welcome to walk up and back, but if you would prefer not to walk down, ask a friend to meet you at the top.

 

The Summit Walk has steep sections, so it is suitable for fit walkers (including children over the age of 12).

 

Meet at the clock near the entry bridge, Australian National Botanic Gardens.
