Busselton Naturalists Club is inviting residents to join them on a walk though the northern half of the Ludlow Tuart Forest on Sunday.
Starting at the Ludlow settlement, a former timber mill, the walk will pass through Bemax’s revegetated minesite, inspect wetlands on the east side of the forest and visit the new interpretive facility on Higgins Road.
The afternoon will include a visit to the old lime kilns near Peppermint Grove Beach and a walk through the Minninup block.
Busselton Naturalists Club president Bernie Masters said the walk was an opportunity to get some sunshine and exercise while also learning about the local environment.
“The Ludlow Tuart Forest National Park is important because most Busselton people know the park quite well and a lot of tourists travel through the Tuart area and yet so little is known about management issues,” he said.
The walk is officially rated as easy, will cost $10 and and will cover 14km in total.
Call Bernie Masters on 9727 2474 to attend.
