Wildflower Walk September 2016

On 3 September 2016, an enthusiatic group set out on a guided walk to take in the delights of the wildflower season in Plunkett Regional Park.

This report (and accompanying photos) comes with thanks from Samantha Colbran (Environment Officer in the Environment & Sustainability Branch of Logan City Council):

The guided walk through the Plunkett Conservation Park was very successful with attendees enjoying the exploration of the fantastic landscape, sandstone plateau and beautiful emerging wildflowers.

Feedback received on the day was very positive and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the morning walk and the abundance of wildflowers. Some attendees have been back to the park since the walk and have informed Council that even more flowers are in bloom.

Please find below a couple of photo highlights from the walk which was a great showcase for Logan’s amazing natural environment.
