ParkCare Patch - Friends of Mount Majura
Friends of Mount Majura
The Friends of Mount Majura (FoMM) are a group of volunteers who work in close collaboration with rangers of the ACT Parks and Conservation Service to protect Mount Majura’s rich biodiversity including critically endangered Yellow Box - Red Gum Grassy Woodland and a range of rare and threatened plant and animal species.
We host working parties on the third Sunday each month at various sites within the Mount Majura nature reserve and welcome volunteers to help with tasks such as mapping pests, weed control, planting of local species and caring for the plantings, collecting seeds and controlling erosion.
The work parties typically start at 1pm from April to September and at 9am from October to March and last for 3 hours. All volunteers decide themselves how much time they wish to contribute and there is no obligation to ‘complete’ set hours.
Volunteers need NO prior experience in conservation as we provide ‘on the job’ training and learn new skills together and collaboratively.
All you need to bring is your interest, appropriate clothing (long sleeves and pants), sturdy shoes, sun protection and drinking water. We will provide tools and equipment as required.
FoMM also holds weekly work sessions in the nature reserve east of the housing estate “The Fair” in North Watson and from time to time organises expert-guided walks on various topics.
Further details including our monthly newsletter and information on meeting points can be found on FoMM’s website at www.majura.org.
