ParkCare Patch - Friends of Mount Painter



Friends of Mount Painter carry out work that supports the Parks and Conservation Service’s management of the reserve. We hold monthly work parties on the third Sunday morning of every month and organise occasional other activities. For those who are unable to come to the monthly work parties and/or are extra keen Landcarers, we also work at other times in small groups or individually.


The monthly work parties for the next six months are as listed below. They generally start about 9am and finish at 12.30pm, but are varied earlier in mid summer and later in mid winter to match expected temperatures.


Friends of Mt Painter's January work party is on Sunday, 20 January from 8.00am – 10.30am. We will be weeding on the north-east slope of the hill.

Meet just inside the entrance to the reserve between 20 and 22 Booth Crescent, Cook.


Please wear sturdy footwear and clothes to protect you from the sun. And bring some drinking water, a mug and some food to share for morning tea. 


Everyone welcome. No experience needed. Tools provided.

Work party activities will include weeding, cutting out woody weeds, looking after recently planted tubestock, collecting tree guards from trees that no longer need them, and rehabilitating a patch of native grassland.
