Working Bee 18 April 2015

A big thanks to all for your efforts on Saturday for our first official Friends of Plunkett working bee.

We planted native trees, shrubs and grasses to rehabilitate degraded areas in the Wickham Timber Reserve.

A great effort to get 370 plants in and several hundred meters of fencing to help protect the planting sites.

The site we planted on Sandstone Break was an old timber haul road that crossed Curtis Gully.

The old road alignment had become badly eroded. QPWS (Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service) has recently upgraded road alignments to make the firebreak network more sustainable.

Planting up one of the existing alignments will speed up the recovery process for this area of the park.

We finished off the working bee with a well deserved bbq and a cold drink.

Thanks again to Friends of Plunkett volunteers for helping make Plunkett a great park for both conservation and recreation activities.

The next working bee is scheduled for Sunday the 17th of May. Work will be similar but targeting a different area of the park.
