WORKING BEES (PLANNED)

The winter rain caused serious erosion and damage to the Bilya Walktrack. Re-alignment work is going to be needed, but it is a bit too soon to get started on that. So our September working bees won’t be focussing on the Bilya Walktrack itself, but rather on the revegetation of Boyagerring Brook and on the John Pyle Walk Track. Here are the details:
9.00 am Sunday 12 September
Meet at the revegetation site at the end of Drummond Stret. Work will include checking on the progress of this year’s plantings, reporting on survival rates, monitoring weeds and removing caltrop.
9.00 am Monday 13 September
Meet in the Duidgee Park Car Park, near the toilet block. Focus will be on the John Pyle walk track. Work will include whipper snipping and general track maintenance. If you are coming to that working bee and have your own whipper snipper, please bring it - along with relevant safety gear!
October activities
In addition to our usual working bees in October (Sunday 10th and Monday 11th), we have a commitment to the Environment Matters precinct at the Toodyay Agricultural Show on Saturday 9 October. If you can help by representing TFOR for an hour or two at that event, please can you let me know. The more we share the work around, the better it is for everyone.
