This activity is suitable for adults. 

Meet at the Artarmon Reserve Carpark, next to the BBQ and amenities shed at 9.45am for a 10am start. Please wear suitable clothing for the weather conditions including a hat and water. We will take a walk along the street as well as along a bush track so suitable shoes with covered toes are recommended. Bring along a camera and binoculars if you have them. 

Please book below to register your interest. 

You may also be interested in attending a survey between 10am and 12 noon in one of our other reserves, bushcare sites or nearby local gardens. This will be depend on the weather being still and sunny, where the flowers are and interest from participants. Surveys will be conducted near Harold Reid, Explosives Reserve, Mowbray Park or Blue Gum Reserve during this week on Tuesday to Thursday.
