Event description

Join Parklands Rangers in our new stewardship program creating ecosystem resilience in the regional hills.

This program focuses on our regional Box Gum Grassy Woodlands - the endangered ecological community characterised by a diverse mix of species dominated by White Box, Yellow Box and Blakely's Red Gum trees. The vegetation of Baranduda Range is an excellent example of this community with a wide range of unique native plants flowering at this time of year.

The Ranger-led Box Gum Stewardship program offers a series of 2-hour hands-on sessions giving volunteers direct experience in restoring and enhancing our regional Box Gum woodlands.

Directions: Turn into Paterson Ave from Baranduda Bvd, then left at the roundabout into Howards Rd, right onto Quoll Rd, left at the roundabout into Krueger St, left into Margaret Crt Drive.
  • What: Activities will cover the range of tasks necessary to ensuring resilient and appropriate habitat including native plant identification, weed identification and treatment and habitat restoration tasks such as the installation, maintenance and monitoring of nest boxes.

  • What to bring: Participants must wear covered shoes (boots) and long pants at all sessions, preferably long sleeves as well, and bring your own hat and water bottle. Current Covid safety measures must also be followed.
