Aim for this Working Bee:

Note this month the working bee is postponed for on week due to the Easter holiday occurring on the second Saturday in April - not the 8th but the 15th! This month we'll revisit a site we've worked on regularly to keep weeds down around our indigenous plantings, namely the Cassia St reserve to the north of the start of Surf Beach Road. As always a morning tea and BBQ lunch will be provided. Some tools will be available for use courtesy of CPRRA and Bass Coast Shire Council environment department.

Pete Muskens

9 hardy souls braved the jungle of the Cassia Street reserve for a general tidy up of rubbish and pulling/cutting mostly sweet pittosporum. We've done a very good job because there were very few mature trees fruiting and most of the seedlings coming up were from remnant seed load. There were also very few shiny leaf (coprosma) seedings appearing. As with sea spurge, we've been remarkably successful in keeping these pesky invasive weeds under control. After morning tea we strolled up Cassia Street to review a recent burn in the conservation reserve managed by Parks Vic and were impressed with the number of heathland species coming through.
