Wildflowers and Weeds
Every month we head into Barrm Birrm to see what's in flower, and to do a little weeding in a place that just needs a bit of love to stay in good shape. Join us!
Next visit to Barrm Birrm
Sunday 24th September, 2023
9.30 am for two hours
288 Gap Road, look for the Riddells Creek Winery sign
It's springtime, and the orchids of Barrm Birrm are moving into their most active time. Out last week is this pretty Musky Caladenia, at least that's a first guess, and Andrew Dilley, our guide in all things orchids, will check it out. Join us to find what's coming out, and learn to see the leaves that appear before the flower.
Time to meet
288 Gap Road, Riddells Creek

Clean Up Australia Day is when Riddells Creek Landcare volunteers clean up what the thoughtless drop, and what the bloody-minded drive deep into the bush to get rid of out of sight. It's ugly work, but someone has to do it, and we do it in a beautiful place, in good company.
10, till 12.

FrogID Week is an annual snapshot of frog species across Australia, and this year FrogID week will run from 11-20 November. Each year, thousands of people take part by recording frog calls with the free FrogID app and help measure the health and distribution of frogs across Australia.
From croaks and barks, to whistles and bleats, every frog species makes a unique sound. Using the free FrogID app, you can record the frogs calling around you and help us count Australia’s frogs.
In 2021, over 37,000 frog calls were recorded, and with your help in 2022, a better picture can be created of Australia’s unique amphibians.
