FURTHER work to Cedar Party Creek will kick off next Saturday following a successful grant application by Manning Landcare. Manning Landcare chairman, Chris Scott will host a special morning of bush generation.
Manning Landcare is a not for profit community organisation that provides support and information on natural resource management.
Operating for the past 21 years, teams of hard working volunteers have worked on a number of projects locally including the most recent stage of the Cedar Party Creek regeneration project near the bowling club. Manning Landcare also has plans in place to revitalise Wingham Landcare - a more local specific member of the Landcare family that will be able to target local issues such as weeds like Green Cestrum that is toxic to animals, and Privet.
The special morning of bush regeneration will focus on Cedar Party Creek in the Queen Street North area. Topics to be covered include: bush regeneration techniques, native tree and weed identification, weed killing methods, being safe in the bush and the revitalisation of Wingham Landcare. Volunteers are being called to take part and to learn some valuable lessons from Chris.
Chris Scott has been involved in Landcare for the past 18 years, contributing to the development of the movement at local, regional, state and national levels and he has a wealth of expert knowledge to share. Meet at the Peter Garrett Bridge on Saturday, February 8 from 9am to noon. Wear a hat, long pants and bring water. Morning tea is provided but please RSVP to Alison 0427 570 244 or Lyn 0427 530 681 for catering purposes
