Sunday Working Party 23 October 9am – 12 pm
Join us to plant local native groundcovers and sedges and help remove pesky Sticky weeds at the drainage line close to the Hackett reservoir. Give just as much time as you can spare.
Hundreds of walkers, bike riders and runners pass this site every day. It is a patch of living, breathing habitat, pulsing with vitality, including many frogs and birds. Our work at this site began in 2003 and it is FoMM’s oldest project. We maintain it to sustain the wildlife, as well as for people’s appreciation and enjoyment.
Meet us at the drainage line close to the reservoir off Rivett and French Streets, Hackett. Bring sun protection and drinking water; wear clothes which cover your limbs, sturdy shoes or gum boots and gloves if you have them. This activity is suitable for children. We provide instructions, tools, disposable gloves, hand sanitiser and a delicious cake for morning tea.
Learn more about this ongoing project here including photographs showing the transformation of the weed-infested drainage line to a native wildlife haven.
