Clean out the gorse in Barrm Birrm

Time

Clean out the gorse in Barrm Birrm

In this creekline close to Gap Road there is gorse regrowth small enough to dig out. This will leave the native grasses unaffected. Riddells Landcare had the big gorse stands either side of the creekline sprayed out 5 years ago - now it's time to finish off the job.

Bring mattock and gloves.

Date

Sunday 22nd May, 10.00 - 12 am

Time

Meet up at

288 Gap Road, at the "Riddells Creek Winery' sign, park on the verge
