Discovery Series 08
Join specialist amateur botanist Roy Skabo, with a Tasmanian native plant 'walk and talk' from Carr Villa Flora Reserve, Kings Meadows.
The little patch of remnant bushland surrounded on three sides by Launceston’s cemetery is a very special place for native plant lovers. This flora reserve is home to more than 150 species of native plants, many of them registered on the threatened species list. There are at least 19 different orchids in this little bushland, along with numerous colourful herbs and shrubs.
This excursion, during the peak flowering season, will open participants’ eyes to this botanical treasure in the heart of suburban Launceston.
Wear: Sturdy walking shoes, sun protective clothing, and a hat. If raining... bring rain protective outerwear.
Bring: Sunscreen, Water bottle, snack, notebook and pen and camera.
Note: A guide to Flora in the Reserve will be supplied.
