We were lucky to have a fine day to re-plant an area that was recently cleared of Sweet Pittosporum. Now the plants are being well watered by all this rain. Thank you to the amazing volunteers who managed to plant all the plants we had into this rough, log strewn area. Thank you DELWP for providing the grant funding for the Pitto removal and replanting.

We held a mini working bee to spread the last of the mulch piles in the quarry. The new plants on the bank are doing amazingly well.

Midweek working bee Wednesday 5th December, 9 to 11am.
Our last "extra" midweek working at the beginning on the 14th November got cancelled due to rain. We will try again. This coming Wednesday should be fine. This will be our very last working session for the year.
We will meet at the New Rd car park, to tidy around the lovely native plantings there. At 11am we conclude with morning tea at the picnic table. Morning tea provided. A couple of whipper snippers would be very handy as there is some long grass to tidy up. Please bring gloves and a smile and we will make quick work of this task.
Thanks for all your support this year.
A quick note to let you know that we will hold an extra midweek working bee this coming Wednesday 14 November, from 9am till 11am. We are just trying to get Glenfern in good shape for the summer.
This time we meet at the New Rd car park, to tidy around the lovely native plantings there. At 11am we conclude with morning tea at the picnic table. Morning tea provided. A couple of whipper snippers would be very handy as there is some long grass to cut. Please bring gloves and a smile and we will make quick work of this task.

Yesterday's rain had given the Reserve a good soak making the weeds easier to pull. We also spread a bit more of the mulch - nearly there with that - topped up the gravel around the logs and whipper-snipped the main entrance. Looking good.
Everyone welcome at our next Midweek Conservation and Conversation this Wednesday 7th November, 9-11am, followed by morning tea. We meet at the central car park.
We will be working in the old quarry area - spreading mulch and doing a tidy up. A whipper-snipper or two would be handy. Bring gloves and a smile. See flyer for other events.
