WORKING BEES

Our next Working Bee will be

Saturday 11 May 2024

What's Happening:

This month we've decided to continue our boneseed and pittosporum eradication efforts in the costal reserve west of the Cape Paterson Surf Life Club. We've made great inroads into this infestation and keeping on top of regrowth.

Meet at:

First Surf Beach Car Park at 9 am.

Note:

Bass Coast Council will provide loppers, secateurs, saws, dabbers and gloves. If you have your favourite tools, please feel free to bring those. Wear sturdy clothing and footwear appropriate to the weather on the day. Because the location is tricky to get to, please bring your own morning break refreshments. We'll will be able to provide a bbq lunch to have together afterwards.
