March 2024

This month the regular session was a wash-out (a welcome wash-out, as the rain was very much needed), so an alternative work session was arranged for Tuesday, March 26th. The session was conducted in the Parklands restoration area. A large amount of Fleabane was removed by enthusiastic bushcarers. Approximately 70% of the restoration area is now (temporarily) free of this weed, and seed distribution has been much reduced.

Pleasingly, natural regeneration of a wide range of locally indigenous species is occurring, as abundant moisture and sunshine are available. Over time, these plants will dominate the site, making it difficult for Fleabane and other weed species to become established in large numbers.
