March 2020

A big group today and welcome to new member Lesley. We continued work in the west Waratah Street regeneration area, tackling Privet and Ivy, and also removing invasive grasses. Very strong regeneration of the local Entolasia sp. grass here now. Our Swamp Wallaby loves this “green pick”, or fresh grass! Locally obtained Leptospermum polygalifolium (Tea-tree) seed was scattered. In the swamp Blackberry and Japanese Honesysuckle were treated; good control of these pests now. A large amount of Privet and also Turkey Rhubarb seed was removed from the east regeneration site.
