Event description

Description

Since the 1970s, the UOW campus has been landscaped with indigenous trees and shrubs thanks to the UOW Landscape Master Plan. The policy of planting Australian native species has been maintained and together with on-site remnant vegetation, UOW campus forms part of the Keira Green Corridor, linking the vegetation of the escarpment to that of the coastal region.

The original Campus Tree Walk was established in 1995 by the Janet Cosh Herbarium with the support of Campus Environment Management Committee and the Office of Community and Partnerships. There are now two walks, one focusing of Eucalypts and other members of the Myrtaceae family, and one highlighting rainforest species common to the area

It is a self-guided walk and has been developed to highlight the unique species and communities present in the Wollongong, Illawarra and South Coast regions - However BioNet has arranged a tour of the campus tree walks, accompanied by herbarium curator Patsy Nagle.

This is the perfect opportunity for international students to learn about Australia's iconic native flora, biology students to brush up before their next semester or members of the community to learn about their local!
