Join like minded people in this beautiful setting for a morning's work!

Tools and morning tea provided! Don’t forget a water bottle and sun protection!

Meet at the northern end of our verge plantings opposite Montessori school on Curtin Avenue where There is a shelter closest to “Tim’s bike” memorial

Bushland Busy Bee Sunday 26th February Roe Point, Mosman Park

 

Please join us from 9am to 11.30am by the Swan River at Roe Point to maintain this small tidal marshland.


We have had great success here creating a buffer from invasive buffalo lawn so that the native celery herb can flourish with a number of other plants that can tolerate the brackish water at high tide!

It’s planned to be 36 degrees so if we get our work done before it gets to this temperature would be good! We do have shade to work in!

Tools, gloves and morning tea provided! Bring a water bottle and wear comfy old clothes suited to bush work and the weather! Hat and sunscreen!

 

Bus 107 from Perth or Fremantle, stop Beagle street, near Owston st.

Sunday looking to be 30degrees! Let’s head down to Gnarangup Park for some final weed seed removal! This area will be an infill planting site this June.

There’s not too much weed seed so I think our team are up to it! It will give our plantings a better chance!

 

Meet at the eastern  area under the shady Rostellifera wattles (look for the overhead powerlines)!

 

Gloves, tools, morning tea provided! Bring a water bottle! Be sunwise! Old comfy clothes for bush work!

 

We have 2 cool beach spots to retreat to at either end of Gnarangup for our break! But we will be working without shade!

 

Bus 107 to Dorothy Genders Village is close.

Victoria Street station contact Sue 0419942483 for a lift!

Come and help us in maintaining our beautiful bushland in Minim Cove Park! Weeds are still holding onto their seeds and need yanking right out and binned. Jobs for all abilities!

Meet at small gate in Minim Cove Bushland off Fairbairn street. Bus 107 closest public transport!

Tools, gloves and morning tea provided! Bring a water bottle and wear clothes suited to bush work and weather. This brown honey eater camouflages well to raise young in a pot plant. Your garden and verge are important for nurturing our local wildlife. They are cheap labour and much more interesting that chemical insecticides!

Join us for the National B

ushcare’s Major Day Out event in Minim Cove Park Bushland on Sunday 18th September from 9am to 11.30am.

 

This coincides with our local annual “STOMP” event which will see 100 youngsters race around Mosman Park to check out the local community groups. That’s us!

 

To pass our check point they’ll need to identify weedy Euphorbia terracina growing amongst our natives in Gnarangup Park and pull out at least five plants. That means we can concentrate on other weeds.

 

This Euphorbia is the tall yellowy plant poking out of the native clump of sedges in the photo. It’s seeds will keep germinating up to 20 years after the plant is removed. This is a good one to show the next generation! A good one to remove now before seeds form.

 

Meet at the small gate around the bushland off Fairbairn street! See attachment!

 

Chance of rain forecasted! Wear old clothes suitable for bush work and weather prediction! Water bottle, closed  shoes and hat advisable!

 

Morning tea, tools and gloves supplied!

Volunteers required to clear some weeds and fill the spot with some of the seeds we and Rocky Bay Rec Connect have been sorting through.

 

We’ll be working on the east side of the fenced area at Minim Cove Park! Walk from Fairbairn or Stone street to the big gate! You may get lost as the bush trail is now almost unrecognisable one year on from our island plantings.

 

The sorted seeds have been in my fridge away from critters who make them a meal. May will be a perfect time to reintroduce the seeds. Most native plant seeds like to get really wet before they germinate. With the right temperature and moisture they germinate. APACE nursery use every trick in the book to get seeds to germinate.

 

Tools and morning tea provided! Wear comfortable old clothes for bush work!

Variegated blue wrens have done better than splendid blue wrens in Perth urban areas because they are more wary. Andrew Thompson from Mosman Park was ready waiting for this beautiful variegated male blue wren with his camera when he showed himself. You can help blue wrens survival by keeping your dogs and cats out of the bushland. How about growing low thick shrubs in your garden to protect these little birds

Lend a hand in Minim Cove Park on Sunday 26th April 2015 from 9am to 11.30am.

We have seeds of the native spinach plant, collected from the few plants at Garangup beach to be direct seeded along the beach to increase numbers further along the river. Old shoes for wading in the shallows of the river are advisable if the tide is high!

We also have seeds of the native pellitory herb to be seeded under a tree we have been keeping weed free. Pellitory is the preferred plant for the yellow admiral butterfly. There is a small amount of native pellitory left in the bushland because it is a prolific seeder.

The recent rains have germinated weeds in profusion. It is a perfect time to make an impact before the natives germinate.

Predicted to be a beautiful 24 degrees!

There are plenty of jobs to do! I hope you can make some time to come and enjoy the bushland , good company, while caring for your bushland.

Old clothes, sturdy shoes and a water bottle! It can be quite hot still so take precaution of the sun! Morning tea provided!
