EARTHCARE / FRIENDS OF ELSTER CREEK WORKING BEE

ELWOOD COASTAL TEATREE RESERVE,
(Between Point Ormond Road and Ormond Esplanade, just South of where Glenhuntly Rd intersects with Ormond Esplanade)

Meeting place at Pt Ormond BBQ area

This area of coastal tea tree scrub provides crucial habitat for a wide variety of native birds.  Careful management of these sites will enable these areas to sustain these bird populations into the future. One plant species, Rhagodia has become dominant in these areas.  Earthcare is currently working with the council to clear patches of Rhagodia.  We are doing this in order to prepare for future planting of local native plants and to improve the habitat values of these sites, without damaging sensitive breeding areas.
Please come and join us for a couple of hours, BYO gloves, to care for this area and the birdlife it supports.
(We will be working within the coastal scrub area if you can’t find us please call 0423 053 494 and we will come and find you).
