AIH Walk and Talk Middle Head Sydney Harbour

May 6 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Hello to all AIH members and Friends!

The first Walk and Talk for 2022 has finally been set for Friday 6th May 2022 at 1pm, With AIH – RH Member Mark Paul and owner of the Greenwall company and AIH award winner. Meet Mark Paul, AIH Member, Horticulturist in his local domain of Middle Head. Mark will be leading this Walk and Talk Looking at Sydney coastal heaths on Middle Head on Sydney Harbour.

Middle Head has a specifically interesting vegetation, with over 200 years of military occupation, an interesting palette of weeds has mixed in with the native vegetation. We will discuss the issues regarding high nutrient levels, and look at some interesting rarely seen heath plants, such as Styphelia longifolia whilst walking along the coastal bush.

We will also be seeing some interesting examples of weed invasion into the local native vegetation, and discuss how these problems can be mitigated. Mark will also be pointing out other interesting facts on adjacent Headlands.

This will be a very informative look at the area not only for AIH members but anyone interested from students to members of the public at large.

We will be meeting at Frenchy’s Café, 3 Read Place, Mosman, at 1pm and departing for a walk that may take up to 4 hours. The walk is a fairly easy walk on roads and track but there will be uphill sections. Please bring water and snacks , sunscreen, wet weather gear etc as you require. This walk will go ahead unless we get torrential rain.

Free parking is available on MiddleHead Rd. Paid parking is also available nearby, look out for the signs.
