The team have had another productive month of fencing and completed about 1.5km of waterway and remnant vegetation protection fencing on a farm in Glenburn and 800m along the King Parrot Creek with members of the Strath Creek Landcare Group.
They have been working through areas of the Yea Wetlands cut & painting woody weeds and handweeding others; and also removed all the woody weeds including Hawthorn and Prunus from over 2 hectares around the Nationally significant fossil site in Yea.
The planting season has started and their first job was revegetating a fenced gully on a property along the Yea River in Yea.
The team have also been controlling English Ivy that is strangling trees and native vegetation along the rail trail and installing nesting boxes for Ringtail Possums that may possibly be nesting amongst the ivy.
We are now seeking motivated young people aged 17-24 years who want to participate in our next Green Army 20 week project starting in late July
