Red Hill work activity Sunday 5 February 2023 from 9am

The last few weeks have been devoted to removing as many verbascum flower spikes before they finish flowering and set seed, with the focus being on a previously cleared area on the western side of the hill above Brereton Street.  This Sunday we will move to the east side of the hill, above Mugga Way to continue sweeping through the high value bushland between the Red Hill cafe path, south to the Gandalf Track  (See attached Map). The objective will be to cut and dab any woody weeds in the area, including briar rose, pyracanthas, cotoneasta and a number of non native tree species, thistles and blackberry. If we have time, there are many verbascum in this area where flower spikes can be cut and removed.

Location: Park and assemble at the Red Hill Reserve Mugga Way car park. Task and safety briefings will be held at 9am sharp

Red Hill work activity Wednesday 18 January 2023, 9am start

The first Wednesday work activity for 2023 will be held on Wednesday 18 January 2023 from 9am until 12.30pm.  Although the forecast is for a cool start to the day, it will become hot, so we may stop after morning tea. 

We will continue cutting and dabbing or digging verbascum on the upper slopes of Mt Davidson.  This is an area that we have cleared before and so it is worth tackling the verbascum regrowth to make the most of our previous work.

Location: Park and assemble at the top of Brereton Street, Garran. Task and safety briefings will be held at 9am sharp
