Frolic in the creek (day 1 of 2)



38 Main Road



Ian Higgins

We’ll be making divisions of some of our successful semi aquatic plantings for transplanting to another location in the creek.

On Saturday, we need a small band of volunteers to help divide and dig up some of our successful semi aquatic plantings of species including:

• Austral Gypsywort (Lycopus australis)

• Marsh club-sedge (Bolboschoenus medianus)

• River club-sedge (Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani)

These large growing species are all doing well in the creek and help keep weeds at bay.

Digging them up is wet and muddy work.

Please wear clothing that you won’t mind getting dirty and that’s suitable for the weather. The only way to (mostly) avoid getting wet is to wear waders. Please bring your own if you have some. We have a few sets of waders to share, but there’s no guarantee we’ll have your size.

As usual, face masks are required for the CoVID pandemic. 

We'll supply the tools and light refreshments afterwards. 

Please use the RSVP email link above to let us know if you're coming.  CoVID regulations restrict us to 20 people in an outdoor setting.

Meet at: Cunnack Street, Castlemaine for a 10:00 a.m. start.

There's plenty of car parking space in Cunnack St. if you arrive late we’ll be working here.

Hope to see you there!
