Friends of Mount Majura (FoMM) Working Party (14/10/2012)

Trudy and Paul replace blown away guards. Protecting tender young plants from grazing is crucial to increase their survival rate.

Assist nature on Mt Majura. Join us to control herbaceous and woody weeds and to care for the young plants planted on National Tree Day 2012.

Control of herbaceous weeds around the young plants removes competition for nutrients, light and water.

When:  Sunday, 14 October 2012 from 9am to 1pm; give as little or as much time as you want
Where: Meet at the planting site behind The Fair residential development in North Watson; view this map, see below description on how to get there.
Bring: Sun protection, sturdy shoes, long sleeves and pants.
Enquiries: 6247 7515

Access the National Tree Day 2012 planting site from the nature park entrance off Antill Street (1) or from the new residential site The Fair (2).

(1) Access nature park entrance Antill St. This is roughly, but not directly, across Antill St. from Carotel – the entrance is between Carotel and Solstice, but closer to Carotel. Once you have entered the nature park, head off towards the left as indicated by the arrow sign (NOT up the hill!) until you get to the fence around The Fair residential development and follow the fence, away from Antill St. and a bit up the hill. It’s 5-10 minute walk. The planting site is behind (east of) The Fair, about midway along the back fence.

(2) Access from The Fair. Coming from the south along Antill St. enter the Fair at the round-about located at the intersection Antill and Aspinall Sts and follow the perimeter Tay Street to the intersection with Ian Nicol Street; you will see the planting site to your right. There is limited space for car parking along the perimeter street.
