August 7th Working bee

On the way to the working bee I took this photo of bike path realignment in front of Live Saving Vic HQ. I also noted that LSV had got some bigger wheelie bins rather than the standard 240 lt ones. The previous ones often stood overflowing in their carpark and looked messy.
Today's working bee saw us plant approx 100 grasses in the NW corner of one of the newly fenced areas adjacent to the central track to the beach. The plants were Distichlis, Sporobolis & Zoysia which were thoroughly staked and plastic guarded. In attendence we had Mark (cub/scout leader) from Kew with son Rollie so he could get a cub badge for is efforts as well as Tracey who is studying anthropology at Melbourne Uni. She is doing a PHD on Port Melbourne.
After Planting we did some weeding in the Distichlis bed (western end of grasses). Weeds were vetch and other stuff. Damien from City Wide and I walked around looking for signs of rabbits and the search revealed no evidence, maybe one digging. As the Reserve had had recent rains which smoothed the sand, it was easy to see if any new diggings had occurred. Also plantings from previous months were still intact and coming on.
