End of year Landcare celebration at Hanging Rock
The council is inviting members of Landcare and environment friends groups in the Macedon Ranges to a special event at Hanging Rock Reserve as a thank you for all your work during 2018.
On arrival, there will be a stand up dinner including finger food, sliders and a sparkling wine at Hanging Rock Café. Afterwards, we will take a leisurely stroll to learn about why and how to trap bats from naturalist, John Harris.
November working bee
Our last working bee for the year was at Five Mile Creek, near the information centre. In the space fo a couple of short hours, we managed with the help of the kids to remove all the poplar saplings and some blackberries. We hope to return to this site next year to revegetate.
Working bees resume at the end of January, we’ll start the year off with a twilight evening event with sausage sizzle. More details to come soon
Update from the Flint Hill project
Stage One of the willow and blackberry removal is now complete. Krista and Peter recently visited the site with property manager, Phillip Holgate. The many willows infesting the creek have now been stem injected. Phillip has also removed many blackberries and hawthorn. In Autumn the Willows will be removed and native plants planted in Spring.
