Our to-do list for 2015

Last Thursday evening members and friends of Muckleford Landcare gathered amongst the garden beds and chooks in the garden of The Hub in Castlemaine to celebrate the achievements of 2014 and to begin planning for 2015.

We have the beginnings of a to-do list for the year:
• Attack Wheel Cactus that is making its way into the valley.
• Blackberry control work.
• Construction of nest boxes.
• Check the nest boxes in the Walmer Nature Reserve.
• Liaise with Council regarding the protection of the roadside reserve at the northern end of Muckleford-Walmer Road.
• A field day on the geology of the catchment.
• Information session on bush tucker.
• A Junior Landcare project in association with Castlemaine Steiner School.
• Investigating possibilities for another enhanced roadside corridor following the successful example of Creasy’s Road.

Already in place is the planting day for the vegetation corridor as part of the Chinaman Creek Project. Weather permitting, this should take place in late autumn.

Would you like to add to our list? At this stage all ideas, big and small are welcome.

The committee will look closely at the list, conduct further discussions with members and begin to put a detailed plan in place in the next month.

A comment to this post is all that is needed.

Get your thoughts to us now so that we can make sure that we have a productive, varied year.
