Ngarri-djarrang (Central Creek Grassland) Davidson St Reservoir (Melway 8 B12) - see map.
Join the SWOT (Special Weed Orchid Terminators) at the last of three events to remove the invasive South African Weed Orchid (Disa bracteata) from this wonderful native grassland in suburban Reservoir, and enjoy a wildflower walk afterwards – with MCMC’s Michael Longmore. These orchids release thousands of tiny seeds which easily spread on the slightest of breezes, so they could dominate our grasslands - unless we can stop them! Light refreshments provided. Phone Michael 0412 142 800.

Wednesday 21 November 2018, 7-8pm.
Meet in front of Reservoir Scout Hall, Leamington Street Reservoir.
