27 August – Landcare Working Bee

Help us prepare for our spring planting at our next working bee on Sunday the 27th of August 2017. Held on the creekside flats near Ruby McKenzie Park, our aim is to whippersnip individual planting sites for our tree planting on the 24th of September 2017. There are also numerous Hawthorn seedlings needing cutting and poisoning and some debris needs to be piled in heaps – so there is plenty of work for everyone!

Please park in Tennyson St near the playground if wet or beside the walking track downstream of the park if dry (drive very slowly if using the track). The tool trailer will be onsite, morning tea is provided and bring old clothes, gloves, boots etc as this area is quite rough. RSVP and any inquiries to woodendlandcare@gmail.com.

Also, a reminder that our AGM and talk by local botanist Greg Boldiston will be on the evening of Tuesday the 29th August 2017 – CLICK HERE for more details. We hope to see you there! If you’d like to learn more about about our local fungi, Wombat Forestcare have a very useful page highlighting 102 of the thousands of species that can be found locally; CLICK HERE to view.
