To all those volunteers who'll help us monitor Rosedale's invasive rabbits - thanks!
The new date for our Trimble training is Friday 3 June from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
Council's Invasive Specied Officer Paul Martin will show us how to use this handheld GPS and data logger (see image on right). Venue to be confirmed.

Thanks to everyone who helped us weed the dunes in Easter Saturday's idyllic weather.
We attacked the marram grass (right) and emergent fleabane we'd missed before - although some of us mistook the native forget-me-not for young fleabane. A good lesson - the forget-me-not is a keeper.
Seventy-one members joined us for our annual AGM on Easter Saturday. After all the rain, it was great to bask in the sun.
Most of the meeting was taken up with discussions of developments to the west, impacts on Saltwater Creek, our dune restoration project and problems with eroded tracks.
If you couldn't make it, the full AGM minutes are here.

Our wet weather over the last few months has certainly encouraged all the local plants to grow.
If you'd like to learn if a plant is a local native or possibly a weed, join us next Sunday to look at some of these plants in detail.
When: Sunday 27 March 2022, 10:00 am
Where: Meet at the carpark
If you have any specific questions please contact me prior to Sunday and we can add those plants to the list. Otherwise, just turn up with an inquisitive mind!

We’re still on the case to clean up Saltwater Creek.
David Boardman and Rory Eames are meeting Rosedale Farm’s site manager next week to discuss progress and delays in sediment and erosion work – the delays perhaps explained by weather and Council slowness over the Christmas period.
Meanwhile they say the creek is looking healthier than it did after the silt run off from last month’s heavy storms. The creek has broken through and flushed out several times and looks better than it did in the photo at right taken last year.

Thanks to everyone who helped us remove the last of the burned out boats and rubble from the 2019 New Year’s Eve fire on Boatshed Beach. Especially to Cory Buchanan for loading up his ute and taking a load to the tip…
Next step is to get rid of the rabbits! At right, David Boardman finds a rabbit warren underneath an abandoned boat (now removed…).
