We shall focus on removing non-local Sweet Pittosporum (Pittosporum undulatum) and Yellow Pittosporum (P. revolutum) and other naturalised woody species in the peripheral areas of the Australian National Botanic Gardens (ANBG). Reflecting Clean up Australia weekend we shall also be collecting rubbish in the area.

Date: Saturday, 2 March 2019, 8:30 to 11:30am.

Meet: the ANBG Southern car park. After going in the main gate, turn sharp left, follow road around the perimeter up to the top level of that carpark. Look for banner or balloons near the pay-parking machine. Bring: Enthusiasm, your family and friends, water. Everyone is welcome.

Wear: hat, sunscreen, long-sleeved shirt, long pants, gloves, stout shoes. A delicious morning tea will be provided about 10:00am
