2012

January and February is time when we do site preparation, mulching and maintenance.

Clean Up Australia Day is on March 3.

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

Tuesday, June 5 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 September.

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.
