Flash back to Saturday 21 September when just after our morning tea and talk about microbats, it began to rain. We'd been working north of the creek in area 15. However, the heavens had other ideas.
It was a short and sweet bush restoration.

On what felt like a morning in Spring, we sprung into action in areas 3 and 14 this past Saturday. Working along the creek, we found many pittos had planted themselves around Owl Loop.
Thanks to Saturday’s volunteers that are helping to keep Glenfern a (soon to be (almost)) pitto-free place.

On Saturday’s bush restoration
The volunteers’ main occupation
Was having some fun
Out there in the sun
– and ending the pittos vacation.
Sweet pittos grow so very dense
Their leaf litter acts as a fence
For keeping out most
Of preferable growth
Diversity – the main expense
Thanks, to all that helped out
This text on your screen a shout-out
With none of your work
The weeds – bizerk!
Hickory dickory dock ohh no what happened!...
Thank you DELWP for a Community & Volunteer Action Grant. It has been used to remove more of the jungle of Sweet Pittosporums as well as providing funds to replant the area with indigenous plants. Here is a before and after photo.
