The Victorian Government has again eased the restrictions for Victorians on the way to re-opening the State following the Covid-19 lock-down. Happily for our volunteers residing in Metropolitan Melbourne, the prohibition on travel beyond the city has been lifted and they are free to travel anywhere in Victoria.
The limit of 10 people attending our working-bees still applies.
We have Sea Spurge removal activities coming up at Squeaky Beach over four consecutive days – from Thursday 19th to Sunday 22nd 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!
