Oh my, that's pretty, but what is it?

NEWSFLASH: Sadly, due to a wet weather forecast, this trip is postponed until January. I'll let you know when the new date is settled upon. Until then, take photos, press flowers, and save up your questions for the day!

 This Saturday the Kingborough and Huon councils are hosting a native plant identification field trip to Cockle Creek for their residents. I am going along to chat about all of the treasures we find there and share some tips on how to identify them for yourself. It is a great place to go plant hunting, plants of the rainforest and the seaside cohabiting in a most fetching manner. So if you're a resident of one of those council areas and fancy coming along to learn, heckle or enjoy the Spring wildflowers see the flier below.

Hi Folks

Have you ever wondered “What is that beautiful flower/plant”?

There will be a Native Plant identification walk at Cockle Creek on Saturday November 27th to inspire and teach any interested people about local native plants.

Transport will be provided with pick up from Kingston at 8.15pm outside the Kingborough Council Offices.  The bus will then travel to Huonville for pick up at Huon Valley Council (rear car park) at 9.00am. 
It is expected that the bus will return to Huonville at around 3.30pm and to Kingston at 4.15pm.

Seats on the bus must be booked though Jocelyn Scopes (contact details below).  People are welcome to bring their own transport if all spots on the bus are booked up. Please meet the bus at the places above.

Please RSVP to Jocelyn at Huon Valley Council on jscopes@huonvalley.tas.gov.au or 6264 0365 as soon as possible.

Lunch and soft drinks will be provided on the day.


Thankyou to John Cox for the lovely photo of Melaleuca squamea.
