Many hands are needed for our spring planting on Sunday the 24th of September 2017. Held on the creekside flats near Ruby McKenzie Park, our aim is plant around 300 seedlings to improve habitat along the creek.
The planting sites are spread out – so there will be plenty of work for everyone! 50 plants are going in at the southern end of the group of houses close to the track near Five Mile Creek Reserve. 70 are to be scattered in the area north of the weir. The remaining 170 plants will restore the area behind Ruby Mackenzie park.
- When: 9am, Sunday the 24th September 2017
- Where: along the creek around Ruby McKenzie Park.
- Park: 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).
- Bring: your friends, buckets (to help with watering), old clothes, gloves, and sturdy boots (this area is quite rough).
The tool trailer will be onsite and morning tea is provided. RSVP and any inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
