Working Bee – Heathmont Railway Line

The Bushcare group met this morning (Sunday 4th March 2012) for another action packed morning of weeding and restoring. Opposite Bennett Avenue, the Heathmont Railway line is home to the Silver Banksia.

Even though it was a dark sky and rain threatened to keep a few of us away, we ended up with a great turn out and even made a new friend – a  blue tongue lizard found under one of the native grasses. The sun finally graced us with her presence and I am sure it warmed us all up!  It was a very special morning indeed.

Extensive work has been done at this site and it shows!  With all the rain we have had in the last few weeks, its good to see how green the bushland is and how healthy it looks.

After a few hours of weeding and re-planting of some native grasses, it was time for a nice hot cup of coffee and simply delightful apple and cinnamon muffins.  Definitely a great way to start a Sunday.  We hope to see you at the next event to be held on 1st April 2012 at Uambi.
