January and February is the time when we do site maintenance and Clean Up.

Clean Up Australia Day is on March 3.

Revegetation with an Autumn plant takes place in April/May depending on rainfall.

Tuesday, June 4 is World Environment Day.

July has National Tree Day and there is always plenty to be done to prepare for it. This also launches our main Spring revegetation program.

AGM is held in October.

Seed collection and plant propagation is an all year round task, along with maintaining previous planting sites and cleaning up the creek.

There is always plenty to do so come along and help us create a natural environment along the creek.
