Things we like to do on our “Enjoyment Days”
- Control weeds and assist in the re-vegetation efforts.
- Support each other as local volunteers.
- Learn to know the features of the property and identify its vegetation types.
- Identify the different birds that visit the property.
- Collect seeds for propagation of local provenence plants.
- Heritage protection.
Or you may just like to come along for whatever peaceful reason you have, to simply enjoy the friendship of our wonderful group and one of the most precious places in the southern suburbs. We encourage the curious, walkers, people who like to read books under the shade of trees, those who like to meditate……and as long as the activity is friendly to the park and safe for those participating, you are welcome.
