WA Branch: Gascoyne Park walk and talk

30 April @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm AWST

AGHS WA Branch is pleased to present a walk and talk at The Palm and Cycad Society of Western Australia, Woodlands.

Gascoyne Park is a joint project between The Palm and Cycad Society of WA and the city of Joondalup. It was established in 1989 and officially opened in March 1996.

The Park covers approximately 5.2 ha (12.9 acres) and consists of dense plantings of palms and cycads, open grassed parkland and remnants of the original native vegetation of eucalypts, jarrah trees and grassland.

Many of these are advanced, mature specimens. The palms and cycads in the Park come predominantly from warm-temperate and sub-tropical climates and to a lesser degree, from equatorial tropical areas. The park includes plants from Western Africa, Madagascar, Northern Australia, Southeast Asia, the Pacific Islands and the Americas.

The walk will be led by PACSOWA Coordinator, Mr George Sevastos.

Venue: Gascoyne Park. Corner of Gascoyne Avenue and Timberlane Drive, Woodvale. Meet at the AGHSWA event sign.
Bring a chair and afternoon tea.

Cost: $10.00 (AGHS members)  $15.00 (non-members). 50 cent ticket fee applies to online bookings

Bookings: through Trybooking.

Please note that we will be complying with WA Government COVID-19 public health and social measures in place at the time of the event. There will be a maximum of 25 tickets available.
