ParkCare Patch - Friends of Mount Painter

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.
