Report by Landcare SJ Officer Kristy Gregory
A Green Army team is operating in the Peel-Harvey region and we have been able to use them at some of our sites.
We have used them at Coffey Rd, Serpentine – love grass removal; Punrak Rd, Serpentine – wattle removal and planting; Beau Sovereign Dve, Nth Dandalup – weed spraying; and Myara Bk, Keysbrook – planting.
Photo of today’s planting day at Myara Bk Reserve, and the Green Army team. It is the third year of planting here, and there is currently an 80% survival rate, due to the lovely soil and weed control efforts by the local Keysbrook Environment Group. 5000 seedling have been planted, with a further 500 today, and a general tidy-up of the guards ready for more to go in next year.
