Second planting day

Our second planting was held on the 20th and 27th of October. About 3000 plants in total were planted mainly in the dryer eroded areas around the dams. FOMM members and volunteers were helped by ACT Parks and Conservation rangers and Warren Saunders of Seeds and Plants Australia.
