A very busy work session was held on Sunday 16 January 2022. Approximately 30 Leptospermum polygalifolium and juniperinum Tea-trees were planted in the western and swamp ecological restoration areas. Previous plantings appear to be doing well. Our Duke of Edinburgh student and bushcare members removed vast swathes of Privet and Japanese Honeysuckle. Other members concentrated on managing Privet seedlings and removing J. microcephalus seeds.
Bushcare Group members were very pleased to welcome Gundungurra community member David King and partner Bella to this work session. David was impressed with the restoration progress being made around the upper reaches of Lawson Creek. Woodlands and swamps are steadily re-emerging, as Privet, Blackberry and Japanese Honeysuckle are progressively removed from the site. As an original member of Garguree Swampcare, The Gully, Katoomba, David is aware of the demands of these projects, and the care and skill that have to be exercised. David also spent time with a significant cultural heritage item on the site.
Streamwatch convenor reports that Lawson Creek water quality was good.
