Monthly working bees
Join our members on the first Saturday of each month at a working bee spending a few hours caring for inner city wetlands.
In recent years we have generally alternated our working bees between Robertson Park and Hamilton Lake. With the commencement of the construction of the bus bridge at Hamilton Lake in 2016 we have reverted to holding our working bees at Robertson Park each month.
The seasonal wetland in Robertson Park was created in 2004 to restore an area of natural habitat to the inner city. The wetland is filled by stormwater runoff from surrounding streets and dries out naturally in summer. Our members monitor water quality, plant seedlings and weed. In spring and summer we collect seed and grow seedlings which are planted back around the wetland. The plantings assist in improving the filtering capacity of the wetland as well as providing food and shelter for wildlife.
Working bees in 2017 all starting at 8:30am. Contact us for more details
