About this event

Take the pathway at end of Lomandra Court and turn Right at the Springfield Central Parkland sign and take the right hand track heading towards Springfield Lakes direction. Continue approx 250 metres along the Louise Clews Walkway heading up-hill towards Opossum Creek Parklands. An A-Frame Sign showing Bushcare will direct you to the site. You will see the Springfield Lakes Nature Care Banner and Registration Tent on left hand side of track.

Volunteers are encouraged to BYO gloves and watering can as SLNC only has a limited amount available. SLNC will provide morning tea coffee/tea and juice with cake and fruit. You are welcome to BYO your own thermos cup & drink bottle to reduce waste. Please wear long pants, closed-in shoes & a hat. SLNC will provide sunscreen. Please note there are no toilets on site but there is a toilet located within a short drive. Please do not attend if you are unwell experiencing flu-like symptoms.

Springfield Lakes Nature Care Inc is a Landcare Group & a registered charity. The Opossum Creek Revegetation Project was initiated to continue the revegation work done by the late Lloyd Bird OAM from 1990-2009. Lloyd & his Woogaroo Environmental team sort to address the native and rare plants found in the Woogaroo Scrub. Work ceased on the site after Lloyd's death. In December 2019 SLNC had received a Federal Government Community Environment grant to remove the invasive weed; Chinese Elm, Camphor Laurel, Lantana & Asparagus Fern that has invaded the natural scrub & is revegetating the site with plants endemic to the area to return it to its former natural state.
