Working Bee: Sunday the 26th of November
Our last Sunday working bee for this year will be at Ruby Mckenzie Park in Tennyson St from 9am till 12pm on the 26th of November. We will be concentrating on the maintenance of this Springs plantings in this area which will need watering, whipper snipping around and checking of the plant guards. There are also woody weeds like Hawthorn to deal with so plenty of work for everyone! Please wear long pants, long sleeves, gloves and boots as protective clothing and a sunhat and glasses if warm. The tool trailer will be on site and morning tea is provided. To RSVP and for further details contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 5427 2312.
Please note in your diaries the first working bee for 2018 will be a twilight bee followed by a BBQ at the Children’s Park on Friday 2nd of February.
Woodend Grassland Reserve in full bloom!
With funding received through the Upper Campaspe Landcare Network, we have the fantastic opportunity to have renowned grassland ecologist, Paul Foreman, undertake a new flora survey in the Woodend Grassland Reserve. On a recent visit to the site, Macedon Ranges Shire environment officer, William Terry, took some stunning photos of some of the wildflowers that are currently on display… Thanks for sharing William!
