A brilliant day greeted a lovely large group of volunteers on Sunday. And it was great to welcome some new faces to the group for 2019. We made our way through the grassy Area 9, pushing out to the neighbouring areas, too. It’s still amazing what we find in the reserve after years of working in it, as you’ll see in the photos.
A tasty morning tea accompanied talks from Mike about a professional owl tracking project underway in Glenfern, and from Andrew about a species of flora in the reserve that I have memorised perfectly – word for word. It was really great to be in the reserve among old friends and new, after months away.
Feel free to join us next month on Saturday 16th of March. We can’t guarantee great weather, but morning tea is a promise we can make. Thanks to everyone who joined us (in person and in spirit) on Sunday.
Volunteering opportunities this weekend - Sunday morning.
Glenfern is having its first Bushlands Restoration session for the year this Sunday. See flyer for details. Come and join the team and be part of this well established and successful conservation project right here in Upwey! We will be working on a particularly beautiful area of the reserve between Creek Side Walk and Wallaby Walk. See you on Sunday!
Great first working bee of the year. So much done from fantastic people. The quarry area is looking great. Thank you.
