Red Hill work activity Sunday 7 October 2018

The Red Hill Regenerators invite you to our next activity of 2018, which will be held on Sunday 7 October 2018 starting at 9am

A recent inspection along the Red Hill ridge has revealed that, despite our focus on verbascum over the last two years, they are back in large numbers this year. So the activity this month will primarily engage with spraying and chipping the verbascum located on the ridge mostly to the north and south of Davidson’s trig.  The rabbits are also back in large numbers and the status of known and new warrens need to be mapped, using Collector App (if you wish to undertake this activity please ensure that you have the “Collector for ArCGIS’ App loaded on your smartphone)

The details:
