Friends of Upper Field River – Field Activity

Saturday 7th March and Thursday 12th March, 9am – 1pm

Join the Friends of Upper Field River for a morning of woody weed removal (olives) and plant identification. This will be a great opportunity to start getting a feel for the local native plants in the area. Whether you are a plant ID expert or a complete novice, there will be plenty to share and learn that will add to the group's knowledge. The group will also flag areas to mark areas containing native grasses and small herbaceous plants making them easier to locate.

Training and safety gear provided. Please ensure you are wearing long sleeves and long trousers (no leggings), a hat and sturdy enclosed shoes.

Meet end of Woodend Drive, Trott Park.

Contact Tricia Curtis to RSVP triciac@treesforlife.org.au

 

O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park tree guard removal and ranger-guided ride

Saturday 18 April, 1pm – 4pm

Come along and help remove tree guards in O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park. Why remove tree guards you might ask? Once they have helped to protect the growth of new native plants, it’s important to remove them and either recycle or reuse them.

Once this task is complete, you’ll be able to enjoy a light afternoon tea followed by a ranger-guided ride along the bike trails in O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park.

This event is suitable for families with children aged 6 and above.

You will need to bring your own bike to participate in this event.

Bookings are essential via Eventbrite.
