Urquhart Bluff tree planting day

On 16 July, on a cool but still and sunny morning, a small enthusiastic team planted 180 plants at Urquhart Bluff.

A small group activity

Some participants had seen our activity on Park Connect and others from our Newsletter.

We planted a range of indigenous species to fill in the space where invasive weedy species had been removed.

The overall wet La Nina conditions are great for young plants starting off, and I’m sure it won’t take them long to establish.

Ollie explains how to plant a seedling

These seedlings will one day provide habitat for the small mammals that we want to encourage back to the site.

Planting in the cleared areas

Nice waves at the nearby surf break meant there were many surfers checking out our efforts, including the Lorne Parks Ranger, Peter Hay. He is heading off to manage a base in Antarctica for 18 months and we wish him well on his new adventure!
