After experiencing Graham’s navigation skills around Narloo during the Easter trip 2021…
Rod Durston has kindly offered to demonstrate why Graham should have done some training on ANY navigation software (or even a map) before he went out leading a group! Rod has an incredible amount of experience with navigation software and will be offering training in OziExplorer for Track Care members and anyone from the general public that is interested in attending the training session.
Track Care WA members have been invited by the Friends of the Western Swamp Tortoise to help restore the habitat of the Western Swamp Tortoise in Ellen Brook Nature Reserve on Saturday 17 July from 10am. There are several thousand seedlings to plant to replace vegetation burnt in the recent fire.
The area is still black from the fire, so please wear old clothing and gum boots or old sneakers. Sometimes the ash is difficult to remove. Also, to minimise the workload for the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, we encourage planters to bring a fold up chair to sit on for morning tea. (Otherwise you will be sitting on the crushed limestone of the car park- not even any trees or logs worth mentioning to perch on!)
Chittering Landcare will be bringing the plants and equipment, and DBCA will have prepared the site to allow easy planting. There are no toilets on site, but 2 service stations are within a 2 minute drive. Parking is along Almeria Parade. Map attached. The red dot marks the entrance gate.
Equipment is limited, so if you would like to help this seriously cute but seriously endangered reptile, please complete the registration form. DBCA will be providing their normal sausage sizzle, so make sure you tick that box!
