Cape Nelson Landcare Planting Day at Picnic Hill

Posted on: 14 May 2019

On April 27th, a group of 18 keen volunteers took on the challenging task of planting out 300 plants on the steep hillside leading up to Picnic Hill Lookout.   Fuelled by a delicious BBQ lunch, they staked all the plants and surrounded the whole area with wallaby proof fencing. The locally native seedlings were all watered in and are surrounded by a deep mulch of dead woody weeds.
