We had intended to do a loop walk but there were so many plants we only got a quarter of the way along and it was time to turn around again.

The list of 69 species included a flowering grasstree, bluebells, lobelia, billy buttons, and lots of flowering grasses.

There was good recruitment of new plants throughout the area. Unfortunately there was quite a lot of Bluebell Creeper – a site for a future working bee.

The track was well used by bikes and alternative tracks have been added. It was an enjoyable morning in a very attractive area and people appreciated visiting an area not frequented so often.

Weed of the month

Bushy Yate

Bushy Yate

Bushy Yate, Eucalyptus lehmannii, is an evergreen densely rounded tree to 8m with spread of 3m. It is endemic to the south coast of Western Australia but has naturalised into the Surf Coast cliffs, coastal areas and bushland where it seeds prolifically. The orange flower pods form clusters like fingers extending from a hand and the horned seed capsules are fused at the base in clusters of five to eight.

More details about how to control this weed can be found in the archive of Weeds of the Month.
