Robertson revegetation tour

Wingecarribee Shire Council and the Robertson Environment Protection Society (REPS) are inviting residents to join them for a guided tour of the Caalong Creek Reserve on Saturday 11 June 2016, as part of Wingecarribee’s ‘Go Wild’ World Environment Week activities.

REPS have been working to restore the Caalong Creek area around Hampden Park for over 25 years holding regular working bees and supported by Council’s Bushcare team and Environment Levy.

“Environmental weeds are one of the biggest threats to our biodiversity,” said Council’s Natural Resource Officer Community Support, Mr Paul Marshall.

“Members of REPS and volunteers have made a significant impact helping to remove isolated weeds and restore this site to its natural state.”

REPS President Mr Peter Glass and local naturalist Mr Steve Douglas will lead the tour.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for residents to hear about the work that has been done to date,” Mr Marshall added.

The tour will run from 9:30am to 10:30am on Saturday 11 June 2016.

Residents interested in attending should meet at the Hampden Park footbridge at 9.20am.
