This year Parklands Volunteer Program is mixing it up to give people a taste of different environmental stewardship tasks. We are working in a different park each week, from the urban to the wild and woolly, doing different tasks according to the season.
Come along for 2 hours on a Friday and experience the ‘how to’ of caring for our bush parks and reserves.
Parklands Rangers will take you through a variety of practical park maintenance/improvement tasks like planting, weeding and removing tree guards. At the same time, you will learn about the local environment and how our local land managers and community groups are working to protect threatened species, improve habitat and link habitat corridors across the region.
Invaluable experience for those interested in, or studying for, an environmental career; a great chance to clear your head and get some exercise, or just a good way to give back to our community.
Today we will be: Removing guards and weeding around seedlings on House Creek in preparation for planting season.
Where: Meet in Gordon Hartsman Park on the paddock just near the House Creek bridge, Huon Creek Rd, Wodonga.
What is supplied: All tools and any specific safety equipment needed.
What to bring: BYO drinking water. For your safety, please wear covered shoes (preferably boots), long pants, long sleeves and a hat.
