Griffith Woodland Volunteer Group aims to protect and improve the urban space off La Perouse Street, Block 55 Section 92. This site contains a wealth of native trees, shrubs and grasses and has many features of endangered Box-Gum Woodland. It needs to be protected and enhanced so that it can remain a valuable recreation area for local residents, and a valuable habitat and food source for native fauna. The Griffith Woodland is currently under pressure due to exotic weed and grass growth which threatens native species.
The Griffith Woodland Volunteer Group meets regularly to remove invasive weeds, monitor native species growth and plant shrubs. Future work could include planting native species consistent with box gum woodland and supporting local wildlife.
The group has the support of the ACT Government, Southern ACT Catchment Group, the Red Hill Bush Regenerators and the Griffith Narrabundah Community Association (GNCA).
Usually take place every 3nd Sunday of the month, from 9am to 10:30am- ending in tea and biscuits.
Anyone is welcome to come along! Bring sturdy footwear, sun protection, a water bottle and a mug for a cup of tea (provided!). Gloves and some tools will be available on site, but you are welcome to bring your own too (loppers, secateurs).
