About the Event
Join ecologist Tim Bowler on a discovery walk through the Hoddle Flora Reserve. This hidden gem lies nestled between remnant vegetation and farmland in the heart of the Hoddle Range, just out of Fish Creek. Its soaring eucalypts and tree ferns, spectacular grass trees and multitude of orchid species are home to a host of birds and animals.
Tim has recently completed a Flora and Fauna Assessment Report for us on the reserve and will be pointing out the highlights on the way. Tim will also give us information on the impacts and control of weeds and feral animals.
This free event is supported by Parks Vic through their Volunteering Innovations Fund.
