The Yarra Ranges Council team, with assistance from our Friends group are planting 500 plants in what we affectionately call the 'giraffe enclosure' – the high fenced animal proof area in the old quarry site which is down Echidna Track.
Please bring a water-bottle, gloves and wear sturdy shoes.
Park at the main, middle car park (rock wall entrance), Glenfern Road, Upwey.
Saturday 17th September, 10am - 12pm. This will be combined with our 'Bush Restoration' morning rather than running it on 10th Sep as was originally planned, due to poor forecast weather.
Well, we did it - 400 plants planted and morning tea eaten all by 1.00pm. It was a wonderful morning, working with such great people in a lovely bushland. Well done and thanks to everyone involved.

Friends of Glenfern Valley Bushlands conducted a planting day on Sunday 29 July 2012 to celebrate this year's National Tree Day. Despite intermittent showers a terrific turn-out of 27 members and guests planted 300 seedlings on the edge of the disused quarry to stop the spread of weeds into the surrounding high quality bushlands. Below are some photos of the day.
