Dunns Creek Landcare – Annual Harrisons Road Working Bee

17 July @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pm

Free
WHAT?
Annual Community working bee & BBQ to undertake weed control works in the Harrisons Road – Road Reserve. Plus, this year: planting some native tube trees and shrubs
WHY?
The road reserve on Harrisons Road, Dromana contains some of the best examples of remnant vegetation on the Mornington Peninsula.  As well as containing important habitat for many of our native species, remnant vegetation on this road reserve provides essential links to other areas including Dromana Bushland Reserve, Bald Hill and Arthurs Seat State Park. These links are essential for the ongoing conservation of biodiversity on the Mornington Peninsula. In addition, the vegetation supports birds that eat the insects that attack our pastures.
WHEN?
Saturday 17th July 8.30am
until lunch. Meet in the Dromana Secondary College carpark. Come for just an hour if that’s all you have – that’s still great.
