ParkCare Patch - Red Hill Regenerators Working Bee
As part of the ParkCare Initiative the Red Hill Regenerators are working to restore Red Hill native woodland. The Red Hill Regenerators is an award winning community group which spends hundreds of hours each year enhancing the Red Hill natural environment.
The Red Hill Regenerators has held regular monthly working bees on the hill since 1989.
Activities are held on the first Sunday of the Month from 09.00 – 12.30 (except January).
The main Group outcome is the transformation of Red Hill to now be one of the most significant Yellow Box – Red Gum woodland remnants remaining in Australia. Red Hill is among the largest remaining remnants of its woodland type, anywhere. It supports one of the highest diversities of woodland plants recorded in South-eastern Australia, while it is significant habitat for many endangered, rare and uncommon plant and animal species.
The Red Hill Regenerators invite you to our next activity of 2018, which will be held on Sunday 7 October 2018 starting at 9am
A recent inspection along the Red Hill ridge has revealed that, despite our focus on verbascum over the last two years, they are back in large numbers this year. So the activity this month will primarily engage with spraying and chipping the verbascum located on the ridge mostly to the north and south of Davidson's trig. The rabbits are also back in large numbers and the status of known and new warrens need to be mapped, using Collector App (if you wish to undertake this activity please ensure that you have the "Collector for ArCGIS' App loaded on your smartphone)
