Peregian Creek Weeding

It is has been four months since I wrote the above heading. So, we are back, and with a vengeance, starting this Saturday 1 August at BA48, at 08:00 where we will continue with our efforts on clipping and crowning the Asparagus Fern and lopping and swabbing Broad-Leaf Pepper trees.

Some work has continued at the site with the clipped area expanded, a few Midyim seedlings planted, and then last week we set up a trial with the aid of Landcare and Skilling Queenslanders to see how just clipping does with regards to keeping AF in check and enabling regeneration of native species.

I have also been doing a few hours down at BA49 to keep the AF regen and Singapore Daisy somewhat under control. We will probably head down there for a working bee in September, just for a change of scenery.

There are some new procedures because of COVID-19.

When you sign in, please read the laminated sheet re COVID-19 before signing.

Council says you should bring your own tools, but it you can’t or don’t then the usual tools will be available, but need to be sprayed first with the disinfectant available.

Hand sanitizer is also available, courtesy of Noosa Council, so please use it.

I have also been informed as part of Council’s COVID-19 set up, that we need to bring our own morning tea or coffee and, of course, maintain social distancing and sanitation. I shall still bring hot water and tea/coffee bags and milk in case you can’t of forget, but at least make sure you bring your own mug.

Looking forward to seeing you there for a reunion by the beach.
