Planting Day - Blue Gum Lake, Brentwood
Join SERCUL at this series of planting days aimed at restoring the western lake bed of Blue Gum Lake! We will be meeting on the grassed area near the corner of Canning Ave and Rogerson Road, Brentwood.
This site dries each year and was choked with dense lawn grasses and other weeds. SERCUL has cleared the weeds and are now undertaking a MASSIVE restoration project whilst the lake bed is dry, aiming to replace the grasses with native sedges and wetlands plants before the winter rains flood the area again.
You can arrive and leave whenever you want as long as you check in with the supervisor first. No prior experience or skill level is required and all ability levels can be accommodated, though children under 16 require adult supervision.
Please bring your own gloves and wear closed shoes, a hat, and ideally long pants. Bring lunch and LOTS of water (more than you think you'll need!).
Follow any up to date restrictions or guidelines regarding COVID and stay home if you are feeling unwell. Avoid sharing tools and equipment. We will provide hand sanitiser and clean tools.
Individual volunteers need not RSVP but please let us know in advance if you have a large group so we can have extra gear ready. Any further questions can be directed to Jayson (email@example.com 0435 554 844)
These planting events are part of the Booragoon and Blue Gum Lakes Restoration Project funded by State NRM
