Wildflower Walk featuring biodiversity inspired sculptures

​13 September 2017

September is the international Month of Biodiversity, which promotes protecting, conserving and improving biodiversity both within Australia and across the world. To raise awareness, the City’s annual Wildflower Walk will feature sculptures from artists Scott Daly and Lesley Barrett. The inspiration for the sculptures comes from channeling things in a constant phase of transition, never really reaching any fixed form of destination. 

The Wildflower Walk will be held on Sunday the 17 September, with the Murdoch Branch of the Wildflower Society. This will also be an opportunity for people to experience the sculptures that will be situated along the Wildflower Walk Path, adding a new dimension to the stripped back organic form and observing nature from a different perspective. This will be a highlight of the International Month of Biodiversity at the City of Kwinana.  

Mayor Carol Adams said “the addition of the sculptures will create a new way to discover and experience our landscape at a time when the bushland is alive with wildlife and wildflowers. The events over biodiversity month provide a unique opportunity for the community to engage with experts in the field and learn about the diversity in flora and fauna that exists right here in Kwinana.”  

This is a guided tour by the Murdoch Branch of the Wildflower Society, who will be sharing there knowledge along the way. The types of wildflowers that people can expect to see along the way include: Kangaroo Paws, Milk Maids, Blue Squill, Yellow Cottonheads, Sundews, Various Orchids (Donkeys, Cowslips and Spider), Native Wisteria, Purple Tassles, Wandering Postman and Swan River Myrtle.  

Appropriate clothing must be worn with enclosed walking shoes and bring along a water bottle. 

We will also have our annual Nightstalk at Sloans Reserve on Saturday the 30 September (6pm) meet at the cottage, and at Belgravia on Saturday the 14 October (6.30pm). 

There will be opportunities to participate in early morning Bird Surveys on weekends in September and Questagame activities during the September School Holidays as part of the Kwinana Fauna Watch Project.
