Friends of Mount Gambier Area Parks

This group looks after a number of parks in the Mount Gambier area.

14 January 2021 (Thurs) at Pick Swamp, west of Piccaninnie Ponds, we cut more stringy bark for the steps at Cape Banks.

We celebrated 25 years of membership on 15 November at Telford Scrub Conservation Park. See the photos below.

7 November 2020 (Sat) at Cape Douglas for the Bristlebird count at 7AM at the car park and beach clean-up at 9.30 AM.

6 October 2020 we continued to lay the steps with the help of members of The Junction.

28 September 2020 we met at the Cape Banks Lighthouse at 9.00 and started installing the steps.

8 September 2020 some hardwood timber at Pick Swamp was cut up to use for risers for the steps at Cape Banks Lighthouse.

5 September 2020 - Penambol CP where the group cut down wilding pines.

1 August 2020 at Penambol CP.  The group split in two with one party removing South African Weed Orchid from the Butterfly Walk.  The other party head to the southern boundary to undertake pine tree removal.  Thankfully the large ones had already been felled but there were plenty of smaller ones to be felled or ringbarked.  As usual a number of small pines were seen lurking along the north boundary so these were summarily dealt with.
