Last Saturday saw a dozen Wellpark Reserve locals out weeding the wetland and slopes around the footbridge over Edgar’s Creek. The area was planted about a decade back, and although a couple of locals have added a few native saplings over the years there hasn’t been a major effort to control weeds. The loss of a big willow a year or two back has let in a lot of light and we needed to stop the weeds getting away. We’ll be back for more weeding in February with a view to doing some infill planting come winter.
