Free

Community working bee and BBQ  (We’re back from Covid restrictions)
Harrisons Road, Dromana
SATURDAY 16 July 2022 8.30am onwards

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 16th July 8.30am until lunch. Meet in the Dromana Secondary College southern carpark. Come for just an hour if that’s all you have – that’s still great.

 

WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?

1] Satisfaction that you have helped to maintain a weed free habitat for our native plants and animals. You’ve protected our environment.

2] To have a laugh and a yarn with fun people.

3] Pick up tips about our native vegetation and eradication of weeds from local experts.

4] Turn up and be eligible for a free bird nesting box, worth $60

5] Enjoy a good BBQ after our working bee, commencing around 1pm, meet and greet your neighbours from the district, relax, chat about your experiences.

Dunns Creek Landcare provides: Morning tea, coffee and juice with freshly baked goods. BBQ of sausages, lamb cutlets, tomato sauce, bread, salads & fruit!   BYO: other food and drink of your choice.
