Tour the grasslands of the Vic Volcanic Plains with us on Sunday September 13

On Sunday September 13 we’re heading out on the back lanes of the Victorian Volcanic Plains near Mortlake for a native grassland tour, and we’d love you to come along if you’re in the region!

Check out the flyer below or click here for a pdf.

Spring is when our grasslands begin to wake up; the wildflowers have started to show with plenty of green growth about too, and we can’t wait to get out for a look around.

Only 1% of pre-European Volcanic Plains grasslands remain intact, and what remains is fragmented across the landscape. Despite this, they support a variety of habitats and serve as refuges for some of our rare and amazing grassland flora and fauna.

On Sep 13 we’ll hear from Dave Franklin from the Woorndoo Landcare Group who have worked extensively on the conservation and restoration of roadside grassland reserves, and from NGT staff about our ongoing work at the Mortlake Common.

We’ll head off at 11am from the Mortlake Market Square to visit Mortlake Common Flora Reserve and some of the roadside grasslands of the Worndoo area for a couple of hours. Free transport is available (likely to be a bus) and we’ll finish up with a free BBQ too!
