20/07/23 Flora, Fungi & Frog survey: Yellingbo

Notes from: a Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater hosted citizen science event.
It was a cool start, just 3 degrees, rising to a balmy 8 degrees by midday :)
It didn't daunt us! A team of 8 flora survey volunteers had a successful morning learning how to ID emerging orchids, then finding and protecting them. These orchids will become dormant before upcoming management works begin, so identifying where they are will ensure they don't get disturbed, and unintentionally lost. Mosquito orchids, Bird orchids, Greenhoods and Large Tongue-orchids were protected.
Great job Taylor, Bruce, Rachel, Linda, Heather, Robert, Sue and Sue!!
Thanks also to Sue who taught us an easy way to tell the difference between the very similar looking Black and Silver Wattles when their flowering seasons overlap - the glands on the central leaf stalk are different. Currently, just Silver Wattle is in flower in our region. Thank you Sue 😊💓
