ParkCare Patch - Mount Pleasant Work Party
Welcome to Mount Pleasant Bush Regeneration Works
You are welcome to join our monthly activities. We carry out bush regeneration work within the Mount Pleasant Reserve on the 3rd Sunday of each month, except for December. Working bees usually run from 9am to 12:30 but at 8.30 in Daylight savings months. By joining the Group, you will automatically be advised of any Group activities and their locations. You will also be supporting the preservation and conservation of a vital ecosystem and recreational resource.

You might be interested to know that a new bench seat has been installed at the top of the Rocky Knob behind 46 Vasey Cres on Mount Pleasant.
It’s not immediately visible from the fire trail, but is located at the top of the Knob close to a couple of yellow-marked concrete poles. The seat faces almost due south, with a splendid view south over Jerrabomberra Wetlands, the Lake and Kings Avenue bridge.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our work parties!
