PEOPLE wanting to make a difference and leave a positive environmental footprint are being invited to get involved in the Devilbend Foundation’s community weeding day on 27 August.
Organisers say the day will give participants an opportunity to meet others who share concerns for the environment.
Devilbend Natural Features Reserve is a 1005-hectare park between Hastings and Mount Martha in the traditional country of the Bunurong people.
A haven for waterbirds and walkers, the reserve includes Devilbend Reservoir, the largest inland body of water on the Mornington Peninsula. The lowland forest, reservoirs and shoreline provide valuable habitat and scenery for picnics, fishing, photography, birdwatching and some water activities.
Volunteers will meet at the Devilbend picnic ground, 159 Graydens Road (Melway 152 J3) and weeding will be from 9.30am to midday.
Volunteers are being asked to bring gloves, loppers, pruning handsaw, sunglasses or clear protective glasses, drinking water, long pants and closed-in, sturdy shoes, plus personal snacks and drinks.
