|We are about 50 volunteers working with Parks
Victoria to restore Sherbrooke Forest to its original condition. Join
us! We work together to selectively and
gently remove weeds from the
forest - plants which should not be there and which (if left
unchecked) crowd out native flora. Restoration
is based on weed eradication backed up by surveys of indigenous flora and fauna.
Can't tell a noxious weed from
a treasured Australian native? Don't let that stop
you! We'd be happy to share what we know. Join
||Some of us are experienced
gardeners, some are not. But we share a common interest
in preserving the natural environment of our beautiful
forest. Our efforts are important to the continued
growth of native plants which the animals of the forest (such
as the lyrebirds) depend on for food and habitat.
We've already had a positive impact on
the forest. But there's so much left to do. Join
us! Come out to one of our "weeding
parties" and see how much fun you can have.
|Sherbrooke Forest is
a unique treasure of Australia. There is nothing like
this precious forest to be found anywhere on the planet.
It's up to you and me to keep it healthy and growing as nature
Come along with us to
experience the special satisfaction that comes from knowing
you've done something that makes a difference today and for
the years to come.
