Campbell residents have formed the Russell Reservists, a small group to clean up the bush between Campbell and Duntroon.
Our Facebook page has regular updates and photos of our activities. See: https://www.facebook.com/groups/466922074094210
Meeting time and place
We generally have three-hour working parties on the third Sunday of every month, starting at either 8 am (summer) or 9 am (winter). All volunteers are welcome to join us!
Activities range from the strenuous to the more gentle:
- ‘frilling’ Cootamundra wattles and larger woody weeds
- Revegetation: planting new seedlings
- Spreading mulch
- cutting down woody weeds (like blackberry) and spraying the stem
- spraying out large patches of vinca (periwinkle)
We have the necessary equipment for lopping, digging and spraying. Volunteers should wear long trousers, stout shoes and a hat, and bring sunscreen, water and gloves.
At about 11.30 we adjourn to a nearby café for coffee.
Please contact coordinator Toss Gascoigne at firstname.lastname@example.org to get information about our working parties.
Our group activities are authorized by ACT Park Rangers.
