Bushwalking Tracks and Conservation Activities
Regent Honeyeater Project
The Regent Honeyeater Project in the area around Benalla plants wildlife corridors for endangered birds and animals on farms and roadside verges in areas around Benalla. Each spring there are a number of planting weekends which require volunteers. These weekends are both worthwhile and fun, with truly remarkable plant survival rate of 95-98%. For more information about the project, visit the website at http://regenthoneyeater.org.au
2014 planting weekends: Aug 23-24 Sep 6-7 Sep 20-21
BTAC Track Clearing
Oct 12 Sassafras Creek walking track
We will start work at the upper end of the walking track. On this event those of you that live in Melbourne can enjoy the ambience of Mt Dandenong as well as helping us clean up this overgrown track not too far from your front doors.
Oct 26 Condons Track, Healesville.
Nov 29-30 and Dec 6-7 Upper Howqua
These are the suggested dates for track clearing at the Upper Howqua.
Which date suits volunteer the better? Let me know on what date if you are available to help.
Please let me know if you can operate a brush cutter or hedge trimmer or have a Chainsaw Licence or an Agricultural Chemical Users Permit.
Please note: Your expression of interest does not necessarily mean that you will be invited to participate as sometimes we need to assemble a team with particular skills or there is a logistical limit to the number of participants. New willing hands will always be considered. In all instances we will keep you informed.
Thank you in advance for your interest and willingness to lend a hand in making our walking environment a more enjoyable place to walk for all.
We look forward to meeting old and new friends on the tracks.
