About this Event

Friends of Farrer Ridge Parkcare Group and Southern ACT Catchment Group will be hosting a guided walk in Farrer Ridge Woodlands on 11 May as part of this year’s ACT Tree Week Celebrations.

Participants will be shown the post-bushfire regeneration of box-gum woodland, a nationally threatened vegetation community. The changes to vegetation in response to our changing climate and the work of the Parkcare Group will also be demonstrated on this walk.

Local Ngunawal Elder, Wally Bell, will lead participants to look for indigenous food plants and discuss their use by Aboriginal people.

Free copies of A Labour of Love, a celebration of environmental volunteers will be provided to all participants.

This walk is supported by ACT NRM, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.

Terrain: rough track, up-hill, low- moderate grade.
