More willow attack: Sunday 25 March 2018

Following the great turn-out at our February working bee, we are going back for more willow attack on Sunday the 25th of March! We’ll be cutting and painting regrowth downstream of the weir while water levels are low, poisoning stumps and piling prunings into future burn piles. The area is quite rough, so please wear long sleeves and pants, sturdy footwear and gloves. Closer to the track there are weeds to deal with for the less adventurous.

  • When:      Sunday 25 March 2018
  • Time:        9am till 12 noon
  • Where:    Ruby Mackenzie Park
  • Parking:   Tennyson St or Ruby Mac Park – look for the newly painted blue trailer
  • Bring:        secateurs, loppers, gloves, boots; tool trailer on site
  • Tasks: cutting and painting of small willows, hawthorn and blackberry
  • Morning tea provided!

All welcome. For further details and to RSVP contact woodendlandcare@gmail.com.
