Group Convenor: Adam Richardt

This group was formed in 2010 by experienced bush carers from other sites and groups. Activities include weeding, mulching, and planting by local residents and volunteers. The group is rehabilitating 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. Not to mention a sausage sizzle for weary volunteers following their fantastic work!

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!
