Well-known local ecologist and ‘Land For Wildlife Coordinator’ for the Tasmanian Land Conservancy, Anna Povey, has kindly offered to lead a botanical exploration of Hollybank reserve. Anna has over 30 years of practical experience, including growing native plants, controlling weeds and revegetating, flora surveys, a consulting business, environmental education and small mammal research.
Whilst this walk is within an already protected area, this is an opportunity to raise awareness of the natural value of these places and why The Wilderness Society is fighting to protect similar reserves within this beautiful state.
We will be travelling together from the Launceston Campaign Centre, departing at 1:30 pm. We will arrive at the reserve at 2pm and walk for approximately 90 minutes.
If you could bring binoculars or hand lenses (for viewing the specimens closely) that would be great, we will have a couple to share but not enough for everyone. Please wear suitable shoes and pants.
RSVP is essential as we have a limited capacity.
