See how big our trees have grown (and help us harvest their tree guards).
Since we last worked on this area, growth of most trees and shrubs has been excellent, meaning we’ve made substantial progress toward our goal of “a healthy, restored environment” within Lindsay Park. There's now a good range of bird species inhabiting this area, including some species indicative of better quality habitat, such as mistletoe bird.
Most of our revegetation plants no longer need their guards, so we can recover them for re-use. There’s also a few dead plants from which guards can be harvested. A number of our plants are still small and a few of them will need their guards re-fitted.
Where possible, we'll be pulling the guards off the young trees, but in some cases, they'll be tangled together and we'll need to cut the guards open.
Wear sturdy footwear and clothing suitable for the day. As we'll be working with wire, gloves (preferably leather) will be essential.
Please bring wire cutters if possible.
Meet near the end of Lindsay Street, Campbells Creek for a 10:00 a.m. start. There’s plenty of car parking space here.
We'll finish at midday with light refreshments.
Hope to see you there!
