Discover to Recover - Heathland

 11 September 2020




Immerse yourself in the bush and discover hidden gems. Over the next year the Milton Branch of the National Parks Association is hosting ten free walks in our area that focus on the recovery of the bush after the devastating bushfires.


The walks are open to members and non-members of any age and we encourage anyone who cares for the bush and its recovery to join us – to look, to learn, or to just enjoy.


Our third walk is happening at the end of September


Theme: Spring Glory in the Heath


The South Pacific Heath Reserve is at its most glorious in spring when many flowers are in bloom and the birds are busy building their nests and tending to their offspring. But do you know which plants have benefitted from fire? Or how long it takes before the heath recovers?


On our afternoon walk our local expert, Nicholas De Jong, willguide us through the plant communities, explain the effects of fire and show as the treasures of this truly amazing piece of health land!

After the walk we’ll have time to chat and share our discoveries over a cup of coffee.
