Friends of Freycinet

Free at last!

Free to travel to our wonderful Freycinet National Park for a working bee.
Free to knock elbows with our wonderful PWS friends.
Free to contemplate the large list of tasks assigned to us by Ranger Fiona.

But hang on:
COVID-19 safety is paramount; distancing extending to numbers in PWS vehicles, new requirements for residence in PWS staff housing, a new job planning process.

No worries!

Into the work. So far I am able to report that we have knocked off a number of the jobs that Fee compiled.
One of which was the repair of fencing at the Top Bank camping area at Moulting Lagoon and the demolition of an old fence at Friendly Beaches. Another was wedding a number of beaches on the East Coast including the removal of over 1500 Caper Spurge plants from Saltwater Lagoon and sea spurge plants at Courland Bay and the Piccaninny Point area.

There was more, but as we still have a few days to go you will have to wait for another report so stay tuned.
Did I mention we were met by scones, jam and cream and cake on arrival and we went to the pub one night? It’s a life.
