Last Saturday MacGregor Lions Club members returned for another great morning in Roly Chapman Bushland Reserve.

The team’s work restoring the native gardens has inspired the neighbours. Neighbour Sam came out to help and has offered to weed and water for us between working bees.  Another close neighbour has offered water from his tank for the plants.

Liz from Hoad Street came out to work with us.  As a result, the last bamboo in garden #1 was removed and 21 native tubestock that will support birds, butterflies, bees and frogs were planted out.

Garden #2 was cleared of choking weeds.  A carpet python hiding amongst weeds in garden #2 was disturbed and quietly disappeared into the Lomandras.  Unfortunately he wouldn’t stay for photographs!v

At the end of the morning the proud team did pose for a photo as they reflected on what they achieved.

Join the Lions team restoring birds, butterflies, bees and frogs to this special environment:

Thursday 22nd March from 3 – 5 pm

Meet at garden #2 (from Hoad Street end of pathway).
