Saturday 20 October, 10am-12pm
Ngarri-djarrang (Central Creek Grassland), Davidson St Reservoir (Melway 8 B12) - see map
Join the SWOT (Special Weed Orchid Terminators) to remove the invasive South African Weed Orchid (Disa bracteata) from this wonderful native grassland in the midst of suburban Reservoir. These orchids release thousands of tiny seeds which easily spread on the slightest of breezes, so they could completely dominate our grasslands - unless we can stop them!! Light refreshments provided. Phone Michael 0412 142 800.
This is the second of three SWOT events, and the Friends of Merri Creek will give a free sun hat to anyone who attends all three events (the remaining one is on October 27).
Funded by Port Phillip & Westernport CMA to Friends of Merri Creek and supported by Merri Creek Management Committee and Darebin City Council.
