Earthwatch, in collaboration with Parks Victoria, selected new ClimateWatch indicator species common along the Lake Catani Lakeside Walk to monitor for seasonal changes. The Lakeside Walk is a grade 3 track at Mount Buffalo which is easily accessible for day-visitors. Visit Lake Catani to monitor our sub-alpine species such as Flame Robin and Mountain Grevillea, though you can ClimateWatch anywhere in the park itself.
In mid-October we recorded the first flowering event for Hovea montana (Alpine Rusty-pods or Mountain Purple-pea). We're excited to continue recording the flowering status of this species and others at Lake Catani.
