Some Campbell residents have formed the Russell Reservists, a group to clean up the bush in Campbell. We meet at the end of the lane between number 56 and number 58 Vasey, at 8.30 on the third Sunday of every month, and all residents are welcome to join us.
We work in the area enclosed by Blamey Cres, Vasey Cres, Holmes Cres, Northcott Drive and Constitution Ave, and our activities are authorized by ACT Park Rangers.
Activities will range from the strenuous to the more gentle:
• ‘frilling’ cootamundra wattles and larger woody weeds
• cutting down woody weeds (like blackberry) and spraying the stem
• spraying out individual plants of St John’s Wort using a backpack spray
• spraying out large patches of vinca (periwinkle)
We have some equipment. Wear long trousers, stout shoes and a hat, and bring sunscreen, water, secateurs and gloves. Morning tea will be provided.
