January 2020

A keen bunch of restorationists got to work on the Privet and weedy grasses in the western regeneration area, with about 10 square metres of Privet remaining to be treated there. The Blackberry and Privet in the swamp are now highly controlled. Seedlings, of course, will re-emerge. Work was accompanied by a nice drop of rain!

The results of StreamWatch testing done today (19/01/20) indicate that we must be doing beautiful bushcare at Lawson because after that long dry period and then heavy rain the phosphorous (fertilisers, scats) and turbidity readings were nice and low, so the well cared for bush is absorbing a lot of the runoff impacts. We are sending good clean water to the fire ravaged areas.  Masses of frogs calling in Lawson Creek.
