“Black Mountain Nature Reserve is one of the most iconic places in Canberra and a very popular recreational area for locals and visitors,” Minister Gentleman said.
“The new interpretative signage and track markers will further encourage people to explore this part of Canberra and learn more about some of the 670 recorded plant species in this area. More than half of all orchid species in the ACT are present on Black Mountain, together with 47 types of grasses and 50 kinds of daisies.
“The aim of creating the woodland loop walk, beginning and concluding at the Caswell Drive reserve entry, is to raise awareness of the reserve’s native flora from the perspective of local community experts and Ngunnawal traditional custodians.”
It is just one of many ACT Heritage Grants to be showcased during this year’s Canberra and Region Heritage Festival.
