John Martyn, geologist and author of ‘Field Guide to the Bushland of the Lane Cove Valley’ (2010) will lead our first bushwalk into Lane Cove National Park from Fiddens Wharf Track, highlighting the variety of trees, wildflowers and birdlife. Two of the Society plant experts, Ron Gornall & Leon Horsnall will also assist, but be quick as there is a limit of only 20 bookings. The grade is easy to medium.
John has been exploring, mapping and photographing Sydney’s natural world ever since he came to Australia from the UK in1970, after mapping in the Rift Valley of Kenya for his PhD in geology. John was stunned by the colour and variety of spring flowers in the bush during 30 years of fieldwork as a minerals exploration geologist in WA. He joined the South Turramurra Environment Protection (STEP) committee in 1990 and has dedicated many hours to STEP’s campaigns and through the publication of four books and maps of walking tracks available through STEP: https://www.step.org.au/index.php
