Help collect native seeds on Mount Majura - 23 & 25 Jan 2015

Date: 

Friday, 23 January 2015 - 10:00am to 11:00am

The seed crop of Clustered Everlastings, Chrysocephalum semipapposum, is at peak. If you have an hour of spare time in the morning of either Friday or Sunday please come along and help Friends of Mt Majura harvesting.

The perennial forb Clustered Everlasting is one of the few ground cover species that is not grazed by kangaroos and rabbits. We use the species to re-vegetate degraded sites that have a high presence of herbivores such as the grassy woodland behind The Fair in North Watson, the Majura paddock and the old sheep camp at Mt Majura’s ridge.
