Maude Landcare Group

An exciting and rewarding morning at the Recreation Reserve on Sunday, July 16th resulted in the planting, mulching and guarding of about 250 trees, shrubs and ground cover plants in the area which has been cleared of sugar gums behind the barbecue shelter.

This activity was organised by the Landcare Group, the Rec. Reserve Committee and the Community Group. A very happy group of locals of all ages, as well as at least four canine friends, enjoyed working together on a lovely crisp, windless morning, fortified by the usual delicious morning tea and a barbecue lunch to finish the activity.

We were so grateful for the lack of wind on such an exposed spot. Hopefully before too long, our young plants will start to provide attractive shelter, and good habitat for the local birds. 

On the site at Spiller’s Bridge on Perdrisat road, access tracks have been formed, and there are reports of increased use of the area by visitors enjoying a bite of lunch near the river. There have been sightings of platypus in the pool downstream of the bridge which is very encouraging.
