Black Mountain Spring Ramble

Friends of Black Mountain had a lovely walk at the 2023 Spring Wildflower Ramble.

The Black Mountain Spring Wildflower Ramble was on Saturday 14 October 2023.  It was the 52nd of the annual ramble being held. Friends of Black Mountain hope to organise this popular ramble again this year, 2024, following the tradition of Dr Nancy Burbidge, George Chippendale, and Jean Geue.

Dr Nancy Burbidge was a botanist and conservationist, the Curator Herbarium Australiense and a Senior Research Scientist, CSIRO. She was a keen leader of numerous weekend walks and initiated the Spring Wildflower Rambles on Black Mountain.  After Nancy became ill, George Chippendale, a eucalyptus enthusiast, continued that tradition for many years. When he retired from guiding the walks, he handed over to Jean Geue, who has asked Friends of Black Mountain to coordinate this very enjoyable activity.
