The Axe Creek Landcare group is running a field day to showcase the development of the biolink between Pilchers Bridge Conservation Reserve and Mount Alexander State Park.
This biolink has been developed over the last 10 years with funds obtained from Federal, State and Local Government through the Sutton Grange, North Harcourt Sedgwick and Axe Creek Landcare Groups. The development is on private land, road reserves and along Axe Creek. This is your opportunity to see what has been achieved. We will also look at the thinning work done by Parks in the Pilchers Bridge Conservation Reserve. This was somewhat controversial, but you will be able to see the development of understorey species where this work has been done.
The field day will take the form of a bus trip to the various sites. Two, one hour walks will be required to see the sites. We will finish with a sausage sizzle. Morning tea will also be provided.
The time: The bus will leave Eppalock State School at 9.30 am. We will pick up passengers at Black Eagle (Park cars in wide area on Sutton Grange rd just north of intersection with Axe Creek Rd) at 9.45am. We expect to be back at the school by 3.30pm
Footwear: wear good walking boots as the terrain is quite uneven.
Bring: Hat, Sunscreen, rainwear according to weather on the day.
Lunch: will be in the form of a sausage sizzle. Please let us know, when you reply, if you have any special dietary requirements.
Numbers: The bus will carry 38 passengers, so numbers are limited. Get in early! Bookings essential.

Please Note: This field day will be automatically cancelled in the event of a Total Fire Ban.
