Park Stewardship Volunteers - Eastern Hill

Park Stewardship Volunteers - Eastern Hill

Event Date: Wednesday 23rd June

Join Parklands Rangers and our Park Stewardship volunteers on Eastern Hill for 2 hours this morning and experience the 'how to' of caring for our bush parks and reserves.

In this year's program, Parklands Rangers will take you through practical park maintenance/improvement tasks like planting, weeding, checking nestboxes 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.

When: 9.30 to 11.30am (2 hrs)

Where: Today and every Fourth Wednesday of the month we will be working on Eastern Hill. Meet in Eastern Hill carpark which is south of Borella Road (at Family Vet) onto Keene St and park in the Eastern Hill Reserve just below some water towers with the Albury Hospital to your left (east). See map below. 

Activities: This autumn our focus is following up Privett and other environmental woody weeds that have reseeded in more recent years.  We are also digging out Bridal Creeper as an alternative to spraying this winter.

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.
