8:00am every Tuesday in the park on George Street, Mylestom
Join the wonderful Mylestom Landcare group who have been caring for precious native riverbank and hind dune vegetation at Alma Doepel Park. They’ve been making great progress on removing invasive weeds and revegetating the site with diverse plants species. This is a beautiful spot to contribute to protecting and enhancing our local ecosystems in an environment surrounded by water. For more information contact Lynn Gordon on 0407 513 849.
They’ll be following the Local Landcare Group Hygiene Requirements listed below. Please read these and don’t come along if you’re vulnerable or have been overseas recently, been in contact with anyone with COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms.
