Erosion control: Stage 2 (19 August 2007)

Project Dragonfly: Erosion Control Work Stage 2

On this working bee we will extend the erosion control work in the vicinity of the lower Majura dam conducted on the 20th May this year. The work will include loosening of the soil, placing erosion matting on top of it, anchoring the matting with pegs and spreading seeds of native grasses.

When: Sunday 19 August, noon to 3.00pm
Where: meet at the lower dam off Mackenzie Street, Hackett (see map for the venue)
What to bring and wear: sturdy boots, gloves, preferably a garden fork or a mattock if you have one.

Project Dragonfly started in October 2005. The project’s aim is to rehabilitate the degraded dams and to create a wetland habitat for wildlife. The ground in the vicinity of the lower dam has been compacted leading to bare soil and erosion. Find more information on Dragonfly on this website.
