September 2014

Friends of Grasslands at Hall Cemetery

September 13th is a busy day! It is the date of our third property planning workshop, which will be followed by a paddock plant identification walk from 2.30pm. It is also the date that the Friends of Grasslands (FOG) will be holding a working bee at the Hall cemetery. Becoming involved in FOG is a great way to learn more about Native grasses and other plants in the ACT area. FOG are particularly keen to have more people from the Hall/Wallaroo area join in their activities at the Hall cemetery.

Details of the FOG working bee on 13 September: Saturday morning, 9:30 am - 12:00 midday. This early spring work morning is to continue our control of fleshy weeds, especially emerging thistles, and also of selected patches of exotic grass. The major action will be spot application of herbicide through the grassy woodland. Some physical removal (cut and daub) of briar regrowth can also be done. Morning tea is provided. Please dress for the weather and tall grass. MOST IMPORTANT - REGISTER with at least two days in advance, so that enough gear (and morning tea) is on hand to match the enthusiasm of volunteers.
