Waratah Park Working Bee – March 2024

March 17 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

At our first Working Bee, Feb  2024, we started with a very foggy morning which cleared away to a fine very warm day.
I was greeted at the front gates  by 2 grey kangaroo’s in the fog.
A total of 6 kangaroos and 3 swamp wallabies were seen in the morning.
The bush birds were chatting all day to each other.
David weeded Judith’ B’s area next to Ranger Headquarters removing 6 bags of mainly crofton, bidens and various weeds.
Myself and Michelle start removing weeds, clearing the borders  and mulching around the front garden of Ranger Headquarters.
I have also started spreading mulch  in the area next to the Volunteer’s Base.
We had a big surprise on the day with one of our most experienced Volunteer’s Barbara .Truely a privilege seeing her in the park on the day. A wealth of information was passed on as always. Barbara did a great job around the picnic area and the Volunteer base.
A total of 7 bags of weeds were produced on the day.
A lost bush walker named Matthew from the US was met on the day and we sent him on his way in the right direction.
Behind the scenes work has started on our seedling area with weeding and the  removal of about 100 tree guards both  plastic and cardboard ones. Over 660 seedlings are being worked on and mulching will start as soon as possible but the wet conditions are hampering this task at the moment..
Our fund raiser for DFRA has grown to $4,237.51 with $672.90 recently passed on to our Treasurer Jo.
Thank you once again to all of our donators.
A big thank you to David for stepping into the role of sandwich maker for the day. They were yummie!!

Our next Waratah Park Working Bee wild be held on Sunday,17th March,2024.
