History

This group was formed in 2010 by Adam Richardt and experienced bush carers from other sites and groups. Activities have included weeding, mulching, and planting by local residents and volunteers. The group rehabilitated sections of Ithaca Creek parallel to Fletcher Parade, Coopers Camp Road and Bardon Lion’s Park. Previous groups have worked this area including Glyn Saunders in 2005, Julie Foster Burley, and Bardon Rotary.

Re-Launch of Ithaca Intact

The re-launch of the Ithaca Intact project was held on Sunday 17th October 2010 at Glen Harding Park, Ashgrove West. It was a beautiful sunny, but cool day, with music, tree planting, weeding and a Capoeira display. Over 400 native plants were put in the ground, whilst most of the site was cleared of persistent exotic weeds. A great day all round.
