Join us at 10:00 at Honeycomb Bushland Reserve for a morning eradicating Bridal Creeper!
Exactly one year ago our successful ‘Gorse-Bash’ at Honeycomb Reserve opened up the area and cleared hazards.
Now we can easily see the regenerating gorse and bridal creeper; both are weeds of national significance.
On Sunday we’ll be digging out tubers of Bridal Creeper in the eastern part of the Reserve. The infestation is still in the early stages and the plants are sparsely distributed. In this situation digging is appropriate as it is quite difficult to completely kill Bridal Creeper with herbicide as there are often dormant tubers.
With luck some Gorse plants might disappear as well but we’re expecting to herbicide control most of these later.
Meet at 10:00 a.m. at Honeycomb Bushland Reserve, Campbells Creek, at the north end of Honeycomb Road where it meets the gravel Trail.
We’ll finish with a late morning tea at noon.
If you can, a mattock, pick or garden fork.
As always – Gloves, hats, sturdy clothing & footwear, protection suitable for the weather, and your own water.
We’ll supply the rest - hope to see you there
