Namba Creek 15th June
|This should have you salivating! The top photo shows a big part of the site with lots of natives but also lots of weeds and a patch cleared by Graeme and Geoff last working bee for us to plant in. The bottom photo shows a patch of silver leaf desmodium aka Velcro Weed, (Desmodium uncinatum) that needs to be removed and bagged. That’s just a couple of the satisfying activities we’ll be tackling on the morning. There are opportunities to fill in the couple of hours we’ll be there, for people of all capabilities and knowledge. We’ll have some experts there to fill in any gaps in experience. We’d love to have your help. We’ll provide all tools you’ll need, but if you’d like to help, come in bush protective clothing including boots/shoes and a hat. Gumboots would be good as best access to some parts is best by standing in the creek.|
Best access to the site is from the main entrance to the Model Railway Park off Florence St Nambour. You’ll see us over near the model railway bridge.
We’ll finish with a cuppa about 10 am.
