9:00am—12:00 noon

At the last work party, our wonderful weeders removed 927 woody weeds, admittedly more than 300 of them were young non-local Melaleuca parvistaminea , a vigorous weed from elsewhere. They also removed bags of rubbish and a mattress that had been left near the fence.

A big thank you to the work party members, and our Ranger who took the rubbish away.

At this next weeding work party, we shall focus on removing non-local Billardiera heterophylla (Bluebell Creeper), Grevillea juniperina subsp. sulphurea, Hakea sericea, Acacia baileyana and other weeds.
