Our last couple of weeding work parties removed almost 2000 woody and other weeds from a couple of sections of the Australian National Botanic Gardens, and about a thousand Saffron Thistles from the powerline road on Black Mountain.

Our next weeding work party will be in the Woodland area of Black Mountain.

Meet:  Caswell Drive entry on the mountain side.

Drive from Belconnen Way southwards along Caswell Drive towards Glenloch Interchange, Woden, or Tuggeranong. Note the yellow diamond-shaped advisory sign showing access road on left (mountain side) and the blue and white “P” sign for parking. Pull into the carpark carefully. Look for banners.

Bring:  water, friends … everyone is welcome. If you are not already with Friends of Black Mountain you are welcome to join for free.  

Wear:  hat, sunscreen, long-sleeved shirt, long pants, gloves, stout shoes.

We shall break for delicious morning tea at about 10:00am.

Please book: if you are planning to come, please email your name and phone number to or phone 0437 298 711. This complies with COVID-19 requirements, helps us to cater, and to let you know if arrangements need to change at the last minute (for example, adverse weather conditions). 

Please note the weather; the work party will be cancelled if there is a Total Fire Ban on the day.

If you need further information, please contact Linda Beveridge by email or phone 0437 298 711.
We look forward to hearing from you, and seeing you at our next weeding work party.
