Our next Sunday morning working bee is this Sunday. The location is on the North bank of Five Mile Creek at the East St easement under the power lines. Look for the blue trailer.
Jobs include removal of oak seedlings under the large oak and woody weed removal in an adjoining planting. A nearby thicket of privet also needs removal. Wear warm clothing, sturdy boots and bring gloves, pruning saws, loppers etc.
The site is accessible on foot from Thomas Court or from Campaspe Drive. Vehicles will not be able to reach the actual site due to wet grass conditions. Morning tea is provided. Newcomers welcome.
