The friends of the dog park have been hard at work again….
Once again to all the volunteers who helped us today at the Pine ave dog park a big thankyou . We estimate that we shifted approx. 20 meters ( 2 very large piles ) of gorgeous tan bark . We also weeded certain areas and it certainly looks amazing . Aimee and Callum positioned large logs as well, hopefully they offer protection for our plants plus habitat for insects and smaller animals and also giving the dogs something to jump over .
We are still on course for the fencing around the frog pond which currently homes 2 species of frog 1- Litoria ewingii ( common tree frog ) 2- Crinia Signifera ( common froglet ), in spring there is the potential for other species too .
We always have plenty of encouraging comments about our work and Aimee put up a sign today so maybe that will encourage more volunteers.
Just a note for your calendar – July 28th is national tree day BUT we will be holding it the week before 21st July which is our normal working b day , we hope to have participation from the kindergarten and should be a fun morning with the children planting as well . More on that later .
Thank you once again we achieved a lot today .
