Planting Day – August 29th

Friends of Tarra-Bulga are looking for volunteers to assist with a planting day on Saturday August the 29th.

The planting site is on a north facing slope along the Grand Ridge Rd, it had been originally successfully planted with Mountain Ash in the early 1990’s. Unfortunately the fires in 2009 killed them all and there was no natural regeneration of new overstorey because they had not yet started to flower and produce seed. This is the second year we have done planting at this site and with the aid of strong wire-mesh wallaby guards progress towards restoring the site is going fantastically well.

If you can’t make it along for the Saturday we do need volunteers to help make up tree guards before the event and may need to do some more planting later on if we don’t finish the job on the 29th, so let us know if you are available.

The meeting point on Saturday the 29th will be at the park visitors centre at 9.00am.

BYO: Lunch, Drinks, Gloves.

Diaper Track Planting Day – July 18th

Friends of Tarra-Bulga are looking for volunteers to assist with a planting day on Saturday July the 18th. This will be the third planting we have undertaken at this site along Diaper Track and we are really starting to see some fantastic results. It would be a great opportunity for past volunteers to come along and view the progress being made, but anyone interested in helping restore a towering Mt Ash forest is encouraged to come along.

The meeting point will be at the park visitors centre at 9.00am.

2015 Lyrebird Survey

Lyrebird Count 2015 photoOur annual Lyrebird survey is coming up on Saturday May 30th. The meeting place is at the Tarra Bulga National Park Visitors Centre at 6.15 am. On arrival the recording process is explained and people are allocated to various monitoring points around the Bulga Park area.

The survey begins at sunrise with the first Lyrebird calls and only takes around half an hour. Following the morning chorus, a free cooked breakfast is on offer at the Tarra-Bulga Guest House. If you would like to come along you need to contact us (by Wednesday May the 27th on 0488 035 314 or email friendsoftarrabulga@gmail.com. Wear warm clothing, a parka, bring a watch, a torch and compass (optional).

Can you spare Tarra-Bulga a bit of time?

Weekends are busy times with lots of important stuff to do like shopping, housework, playing/watching sport, sleeping in etc, but why not put all that on hold tomorrow and join us at our working bee.

The Friends of Tarra-Bulga National Park are seeking volunteers on Saturday April 18th to help with some weeding and preparation for an upcoming planting day.

The worksite is along Diaper Tk and getting there will involve a scenic 3km walk. The work involves rehabilitating a site where a major infestation of Sycamore Maple was discovered several years ago. The site is quite overgrown with re-growth scrub and as well as looking for weeds to pull we will be clearing new tracks to allow easier access for a tree planting planned in July.

The meeting point is at the park visitors’ centre at 9am. You will need to take a cut lunch and your own drink. For further details phone David on 0488 035 314 or email friendsoftarrabulga@gmail.com
