Hello friends and supporters. We have a bushlands restoration morning coming up on Saturday 23rd September. And the weather will be warm next week at last! So the timing is perfect for you to come along to Glenfern and join in with this fantastic community project. See belor for details and see you there.
Glenfern volunteers were out in force at the Upwey GrassRoots market on Saturday. Glenfern were joined at the hip with the Upwey Township stall so we could cover all bases together. There was a great engagement with the community and much information was shared. Many volunteers helped out during the day. Great day - thanks you everyone for helping. Thank you GrassRoots.
The students from Fairhills High helped us spread mulch around the plantings at the New Road end of the Reserve. It looks fantastic now. We also enjoyed taking them on an educational walk in the Bushlands. Thanks so much.
Glenfern Valley Bushlands will have a stall at the Upwey Grassroots Market - this Saturday the 16th September. Come along and catch up. Do you want to know more about the group? - Do you want to know how to deal with weeds? - Do you want to know more about local fauna? - Do you just like to drop by to say hello? We will be there! From 10 am to 3 pm.
It was fresh but beautiful in the Reserve this morning. Many hands meant we were able to weed all of Areas 2 and 12. Thank you.
We accomplished so much at our mid week working bee this morning. Recently planted Blackwood seedlings that were being eaten by Wallabies had their small tree guards replaced with taller ones, a new Waa was welded onto the front gate to replace the one stolen and a load of toppings was spread in the old quarry area. Thank you wonderful volunteers, the Bushlands are looking beautiful.
Greeting to all our wonderful supporters. Our next Midweek Conservation and Conversation at Glenfern Valley Bushlands will be on Wednesday the 5th July. We need to protect the some of new plantings from the wallabies by installing some taller tree guards. All welcome. Come along and see how to help our bushlands.
