2017 PLANTING AND OTHER ACTIVITIES
LITTLE TRIANGLES – Hoping to build and plant up ten tiny enclosures on “Adnamira” which will extend connectivity out into the pastures. Up to five additional enclosures on “Esdale” will be created as time permits.
ROCKY KNOLL – filling a strategically placed rocky knoll on “Esdale” with around 100 mixed shrubs and trees. Possible date – last weekend in June. .
WINDBREAK/ CONNECTION – Our major project for 2017. It will need 900 trees, connecting an existing windbreak with a gully, rocky knoll and nearby remnant trees. We will break the planting into a number of days,
Mulching our new areas and managing our existing plots, surveying for weeds and spring plants.

Our main planting sessions are in July/August but there’s various kinds of preparation to do year round (eg weeding, mulching, birdwatching, plant identification).
For planting – bring sturdy boots and trousers. Dress in layers as Canberra weather can be chilly in the morning but bright and sunny by midday. The grass may be wet. Gloves are a good idea if you don’t want to get your hands dirty. If you have equipment such as mattocks or garden trowels, that’s useful too.
We’re planning to do half days with volunteers, from 9am until 2pm to allow for watering in the afternoon. We will provide a morning snack, and delicious lunch within that time.
