Weather Forecast

Waring Wombat Season [Apr-Jul]

Cool, rainy days follow misty mornings. The time of highest rainfall and lowest temperatures.  Waring (wombats) emerge to bask and graze in the sunshine.

Bulen-bulen (Superb Lyrebird) males perform their courtship displays.

Hearts of Kombadik (Soft Tree-ferns) are the major food when no fruits are available.

Days are short and nights are long.

The constellation of Sagittarius rises in the southeast after sunset, indicating the mid point of cold weather.

2012-sites250Click on the iage to see an enlargementThe task was to in-fill plant 320 tube stock into areas that had previously been revegetated.  The main target was the WLSC car park area where 12 large pine trees had been removed some two weeks previously ... but this work had resulted in some previously planted areas being crushed.  This is designated Site 1in the image on the right.

With 19 volunteers from a wide age range attending, the 320 plants took only 1.5 hours to get in, so after a good morning tea, the working bee was able to be completed sooner than expected.  Many thanks to the community volunteers who attended, including the Wonthaggi Life Saving Club volunteers who, once again, helped with the morning tea. 

Photos from the morning's work are below.

The next working bee is scheduled for 9am Sat 11-Aug-2012.
