Weeding with a view – Third Sunday working bee 21 May from 1 – 4pm
Many people enjoy the Casuarina Track and the views from the ridge where it joins the Summit Track. Twenty years ago, the saddle was a treeless expanse covered with weeds – a legacy of the time when the mountain was grazed by sheep. One of FoMM’s early projects was to remove the weeds and plant a variety of local native plants which are now thriving.
FoMM makes occasional maintenance visits to remove any weeds which are creeping back. Come and give some time at this beautiful site as we hand pull Horehound and Fleabane.
Meet at the old sheep camp at 1pm. It will take about 30 minutes to walk to the site from any of the trails marked on this map. If you want to walk with a group, meet at 12.30 at the point on the map flagged 2.
Bring sun protection, drinking water, secateurs and garden gloves if you have them. Wear sturdy shoes and clothes which cover your limbs. We provide sanitiser, some tools, gloves, and a delicious cake for afternoon tea. More information here.
