The Victorian Government has again eased the restrictions for Victorians on the way to re-opening the State following the Covid-19 lockdown. Unfortunately for our volunteers residing in Metropolitan Melbourne, the prohibition on travel to regional Victoria stays for the time being.
For regional Victorians, the restrictions are not changed for volunteer activities at the Prom. The limit of 10 people attending our working-bees still applies.
Our next activity is removing the invasive weed Sea Spurge at Squeaky Beach on Saturday 7 November.
On Saturday 17th October, nine volunteers planted another 135 Swamp Gums as part of a project to restore koala habitat on the Yanakie Isthmus. Each tree was protected by a sturdy steel tree-guard to protect it from browsing animals such as rabbits, deer kangaroos, wallabies and wombats. The tree-guards were built by Friends of the Prom volunteers from materials paid for by a generous Landcare grant.
Note the social distancing!
