Black Mountain Weeding Work Party

You are here

Saturday, 3 June 2023 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

Dear Friends,

Thank you to our wonderful weeding work party last month who removed more than 960 weeds, particularly Billardiera heterophylla and Acacia baileyana as well as 4 other species of weeds during the work party.

Our next weeding work party is planning to continue to remove these weeds along the lower side of Black Mountain Drive

Please note that the meeting point is the lower gate, at the end of the bottom row of the Southern car park, of the Australian National Botanic Gardens. We shall walk up from there towards the water tank and provide ferry cars if needed.

Details of the next weeding work party are:

Date: Saturday, 3 June 2023, 9:00am to 12 noon 
 we’ll meet at lower gate of the ANBG’s Southern Car-park. To reach this place, come through the main entry gates, turn left immediately, and park in this bottom row. Look for banners.
We shall walk up from there to the work site, and provide ferry cars if needed.

Bring:  more of your friends if you wish, as everyone is welcome.  

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

We shall break for delicious morning tea at about 10:30am

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

If you need further information, please contact me by email or phone 0437 298 711.

We look forward to hearing from you, and seeing you at our next weeding work party.
