Volunteer Bulletin December 2023

Key focus for this month is some last minute maintenance on the lake walkway prior to the busy holiday period. On the 3rd the crew will focus on the far end of the lake and get more metal spread through the worst of the wet areas.

On the following Sunday, the  there will be a general tidy up of the heavily used section of walkway from the main carpark around past the pontoon.

On the 17th the working bee team will again carryout the outside fence and trap check.  

There will be no working bees on the last 2 Sundays of the month as they are Christmas Eve and New Years Eve.

If anyone has some time during the week, over the holiday period and would like to help out there is plenty to do. Fence checks, trap checks and a tracking card run are some of the tasks assistance will be called for as other volunteers are hoping to take well deserved breaks.

If you are able to help please contact either Fiona, Kane or myself.

If there is anyone who would like to attend a volunteer induction session, I will be holding the last one for the year on Sunday 10th at 10.00am. Let me know if you are interested.
