Come along to help with this little known part of our creek.
The public land along Campbells Creek near the Cemetery Rd bridge is a ‘mixed bag’ at the moment. There’s been massive River Red-gum regeneration and good wattle direct seeding success just down from the bridge, but feral woody weeds are taking over in places.
We’ll be working up and downstream from the bridge, cutting the weed stems and ‘painting’ them with herbicide using sponge-tip applicator bottles.
There’ll be an opportunity to explore further downstream to see what the creek is like where our inaugural president Dick Green has been working with neighbours to reduce the weed infestation.
If you can, bring loppers, large secateurs or a pruning saw. Wear gloves, hat and sturdy clothing suitable for the weather and your own water.
We’ll supply the rest, including a late morning tea.
Meet at 10:00 AM at the parking area off Cemetery Rd/Alexandra St just south west of the bridge.
Hope to see you there!
There’s an album of photos here showcasing this area back in 2009 through to 2016 so you can appreciate some of the changes we've made (and remember moister times!).
