December Bushcare – Going Walkabout

For the last work session of the year, Monica led the group on a walk-around of the reserve.

The team noted some interesting plants, as well as a glimpse of a fast-moving swamp wallaby.

One of the issues seen was a drainage problem by the highway, with storm overflows having an obvious impact on the landscape. On the other hand, the dam was full and many of the deanei plantings were healthy.

The team capped off a great year with a generous Christmas lunch.
