Beyond Bolac CAG is seeking help to weed the Native Grass Plantation on the Foreshore at Lake Bolac. The weeds, particularly the dreaded silver grass, have grown rapidly following recent heavy rain and we are looking for assistance to have the site presentable for the expected influx of summer visitors.
The plantation is really starting to fill out and develop well. Many of the natives are flowering and it is a treat to wander through the slope and have a close up look at the variety of locally propagated wildflowers and native grasses.
Many groups have worked hard at the site this year. In August, the Drought Relief Crew from Ararat spent a day weeding, preparing the site for LBC Yr 7 & 8 students to continue assisting with the planting schedule. The Green Army has also assisted twice this year. Thanks also to Ron Hogan who has spent many hours quietly chipping away, enjoying the beautiful setting beside the lake.
We are looking for local volunteers to put in two hours per week from 9:00 am – 11:00 am on Monday mornings until the beginning of December. Many hands make light work, and it will be a good opportunity to learn about the natives in our region and enjoy some social interaction.
Please phone Nolene Fraser on 0438 502 268 if you can help; the day and time can be altered to suit.
