On a perfect Canberra late autumn day ten volunteers helped removing four cubic meter of Japanese Honeysuckle from the lower part of the drainage gully close to the lower Hackett reservoir.
A big Thank You to Grace, Lani, Sam, Felicity, Chris, Tanja, Margy, Max and Jochen for this wonderful and very satisfying massacre. It was particularly encouraging to have so many engaged young people and Margy’s delicious cake was a truly earned treat for everyone.
Participants were startled by a fox hiding in the thickets.
All weeds were pulled rather than cut and sprayed with herbicide. The drain line is known habitat for long neck turtles and frogs and alas participants of the work party were delighted to spot a little frog of which Max took this photo.
