|A relatively dry spring and promise of a warmer summer ahead
Kedron Brook Catchment has been relatively dry despite some occasional optimistic weather forcasts from our Bureau of Meteorology. The frequent suggestions of 'Some showers' in the daily paper keep up our spirits but the end result is that many of our revegetation plots are needing regular hand watering... particularly for young plants.
Volunteers from our bushcare groups visited over the last few months indicate that watering of young plants takes up a large percentage of their time on their monthly rounds.
Zion Hill and Osborne Road bushcare groups figure in our home page images and show that even small numbers within a group can make a huge difference to our bushland patches along the Brook.
