The past few weeks have been a difficult time for PWS and Fire Service Officers battling the bushfires in the South West World heritage area, and it has been necessary to keep the alpine area of Mt Field National Park closed for a number of weeks as a safety precaution. As a result STSA’s last working bee was cancelled, but fortunately this weekend we have the go-ahead for our February working bee. Overnight stays in the park are still not permitted, and so the working bee has been shortened to one day only – Saturday 16th February 2019.
There are a number of tasks to be undertaken, including snow fence repair and improvement on the Mawson run, rock removal and tidy up following the removal of the shade cloth by the Friends of Mt Field, stabilising the first pole on the Mawson run, and even some painting!
STSA volunteers will be heading up the mountain on Saturday morning, meeting at the Lake Dobson Gate at 10:00 am sharp. If you are able to come along and assist please let Peter Davis know at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
