We have one last opportunity in 2020 to work together on improving our Creekside environment.  We will be holding a working bee on Sunday 6 December, continuing the work done at the November event.  Come along and help us protect the germinating wattles that we sowed back in July.

In November we located a number of very tiny wattles spread over a large area.  We will continue protecting them from the grazing wallabies with wire guards and stakes.

For those who weren’t able to attend the November working bee, there may be a chance to inspect our wildflower enclosure, which has bloomed through spring.  There are photos of some of the growth online here.

Meet at 10:00 AM here outside the enclosure.  We’ll finish by 12.00.

Leave cars at the parking area at the north end of Honeycomb Road. It’s a two minute (180 m) stroll  down the trail to the meeting spot.

Bring:    gloves.  If you have wire-cutters please bring them.  You’ll need a hat, sturdy clothing and footwear suitable for the weather. Bring your own drinking water and any snacks you might want.  We’ll supply the rest.

CoVID 19 restrictions will still be in place, so unfortunately no morning tea can be supplied.

Coronavirus protocols:

The following provisions are for the protection of attendees, and to ensure our volunteers are covered by insurance.

    • If you prefer to wear a face mask,  please bring your own.
    • Hand sanitisers will be available.
    • Social distancing:  volunteers (adults and children) will maintain a 1.5 metres separation from those not in their household.
    • There will be no sharing of equipment, including tools, gloves and sign-on sheets.  Bring your own equipment, or use our pre-sanitised equipment, and then maintain exclusive use of those for the morning.
    • Unfortunately we will not provide our usual shared morning tea.  If needed, please bring your own drinks and snacks.
    • We will make sure we have a record of everyone who has attended, and their contact information should there need to be a follow-up.
    • Do NOT attend if you are feeling unwell, if you have concerns about your own health or that of vulnerable people you are close to.
    • If you become concerned about your health in the days following the activity, let us know so that others can be alerted.
    • Plans may need to be reviewed and changed at short notice, depending on changing advice.
