UGLN Green Army – May Update

Over May the team have been helping with the construction of the Y-Water Centre bush tucker garden. The team have been planting, direct seeding a native lawn and spreading many cubic metres of mulch and river pebbles.

The planting season is now underway and our first planting day was held at the property of Lea Jellinek in Taggerty where the team planted 400 mostly shrubs and understorey plants along a creek. Thank you to Lea for providing a very yummy and nutritious morning tea and lunch for the team.

They have also been finishing off the fencing at a Gobur property and are now ready to start planting out the site. Also up in Gobur at a Trust For Nature property ‘Billy Goat Hill’ we installed nesting boxes for Sugar Gliders and Brush-tailed Phascogales.

We also set up a couple of our remote cameras to see what wildlife we can record. So far only possums and birds but we did get some great photos of the very significant Brown Treecreepers.

And as usual weed control is on the agenda and the rail trail around Koriella had Cotoneaster, Prunus and Hawthorn controlled either by the cut & paint method or drilled and injected with poison and left to die in-situ.

Next month we will be full swing into our revegetation activities at landcare member properties in the Highlands, Gobur, Limestone, Taggerty and Killingworth.
