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.



Organised by Friends of Aranda Bushland, with the help of Friends of Mt Painter, from 9 am to 12 noon Sunday, September 2

Come for just an hour, or for the whole morning. Our delicious morning tea will be served at 10 :30 am.

TASKS:  We will be planting Lomandra, Poa lab, and Acacia dealbata tubestock along the margins of the eroded gully. Another team will be cutting out a patch of large hawthorns.

MEET:  9:00 am at the “Environmental Work in Progress” sign on William Hovell Drive eastbound between the intersection with Bindubi Street and Glenloch Interchange

WEAR/BRING: Wear strong shoes and bring water, a hat and gloves. Gloves and tools will be available, but bring your own if you like. You could also bring a few nibbles as a contribution to the 'delicious morning tea".
