Bush Restoration at Peregian Creek

The start of another year of restoring the bush around Peregian Creek back to its native state will be this Saturday, the 6th February. For those who can come we shall meet at 07:00 along BA49 towards the fore dune on the south side. There we shall continue work on Broad-Leaf Pepper eradication, plus removing more the Asparagus Fern in the area. if you have gum boots you can also work across the boardwalk in the creek getting rid of the ongoing Singapore Daisy menace.

We shall be continuing the excellent work undertaken by 11 roving restorers plus four of our own last Friday morning. I may even continue with some of drilling and injection poisoning of the Broad leaf Peppers that Wes Manson started as a trial on Friday. The trees marked with blue ribbons are part of that trial to find a more effective and quicker way of dealing with the Peppers.

Look forward to seeing you there.
