Saturday 10 November, 8.30am - 4.00pm
Meet at Dennis St Northcote beside the Northcote Plaza shopping centre carpark (see map) at 8.30am for bus leaving at 9am sharp. We will visit important sites for the conservation of the Merri's ‘Secret Seven’ rare plants and explore significant vegetation along the Say G’day trail near the Merri’s headwaters at Heathcote Junction. You will learn about threats to the survival of the wild plants and about the reintroduction sites that will help secure their future on the Merri.
