Friends of Mount Gambier Area Parks







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

On Monday 28 September we will meet at the Cape Banks Lighthouse at 9.00 and start installing the steps. On Tuesday 6 October we will continue to lay the steps with the help of members of The Junction.

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

The working bee before that was 5 September 2020 at Penambol CP where the group cut down wilding pines.

We had a successful outing 1 Aug 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.
