You may remember seeing a mention of a significant new weed that has reared its ugly little head.

Proper name is Moraea bellendenii.

See the three images attached - if you see it, please let Barb Raine, Bushcare Coordinator for the Friends, (8278 2370) know about it straight away.

Thanks,

Regards, Tina Gallasch

Friends of Waite CR - walking bees schedule

2016 WORKING BEES Walking

(Working) Bees are held on the first Saturday and third Sunday of the month, from mid April to early December. Start time is 9:00 am and we generally try to finish at about 12:30pm.

Please bring lunch with you, so that we can sit and share time at the end of the walking bee.

Working bees will continue to concentrate on walking cleared parts of the reserve pulling seedling olives. In some areas we will also use tree-poppers to remove larger plants and spray or drill & fill regenerating olives

Working bees will still go ahead even if rain is forecast.

Email reminders are sent out the week beforehand.

Contact Peter Bird - pbjbird1@bigpond.com or 0418 853 834 to register your interest.
