Removing weeds from Taroona Park recreation area, 9th September 2018
On Sunday 9th September a group of TEN volunteers weeded the blackberries, cotoneasters, boneseed and briar rose in the bushland recreation area north of the Taroona Beach boat ramp. It was encouraging to see healthy regeneration of native species including Astroloma, Poa, Lomandra, and Eucalyptus. TEN has worked to maintain this area of important swift parrot habitat over many years.
Bianca, a TEN volunteer, holds a briar rose. Removing weeds by including the roots and then properly disposing of the resulting green waste, ensures successful weeding and minimises the need for herbicides.
