Work Party at the Fair

Date: 

26 Jun 2016 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Give a hand on Sunday, 26 June and help transform Mount Majura’s weedy woodland at The Fair into a grassy woodland. Enjoy the view of little woodland birds foraging among planted trees and shrubs and learn about our work to reclaim grassy woodland in the area.

We will be spreading wood chip mulch to reduce erosion of bare soil that resulted from overgrazing; removing tree guards outgrown by their inhabitants; placing debris of woody weeds around young plants to protect them from grazing damage; and hand-weeding Paterson’s Curse that competes with native plants for light, nutrients and water.

The organizers of the working party would appreciate if you could come early for an introduction; give as much of your time as you want.

When: Sunday, 26 June, 1pm – 4pm
Where: Nature park entrance Tay / Ian Nicol Streets, The Fair, North Watson; view map
Bring / Wear: Sun protection, sturdy shoes; tools and afternoon tea will be provided.
