This will be the last dieback treatment field day until Spring.
We will be treating the trees to protect them against Phytophthora Dieback in the south end of Hall Road Bushland Reserve. This section runs from Michael Road to Norman Road.
This is an ideal opportunity to learn how to protect your own trees with our experienced volunteers.
These Reserves can be accessed by numerous other roads. There is no road access from Trevor Court to Lockyer Rise. It has been closed off.
The Great Cocky Count is on April the 9th this year, with registrations closing on March 19th.
Presented by the Bungendore Park Management Committee
Leave the bright lights of the city and the luminescence of your digital devices for a short while and savour the wonders of the eternal sky at the ‘Stars over Bungendore’ astronomy evening on Friday 17th February 2017 from 7:30pm to 9.30pm.
Richard Tonello of Astronomy Education Services will start with a fascinating presentation after which he will train his telescopes on targets including the constellations of Orion, Southern Cross, Carina, Gemini and Taurus and other cosmic features such as the Great Orion Nebula, the Jewel Box Cluster, the Wishing Well Cluster and the Tarantula Nebula.
Should the weather prevent direct star gazing, an extended presentation will be provided. The event is suitable for adults and children alike.
Have a look at the many walks and talks planned by the Armadale branch in the following file. flyer_walkstalks_2017feb.pdf.
Our field days provide our community with the opportunity to learn how to treat their own blocks to protect against dieback disease. If you are a local then may borrow our equipment for free if you come along and help out on a field day. It is cheaper to treat a tree than pay hundreds of dollars to remove a dead one.
The Quenda Count finishes on 30th November so if you are interested then comlete the forms.Read more...
