Western Tiers Wildcare Group
Volunteers who have been working on Higgs Track are setting up the new Western Tiers Wildcare group . 17 volunteers have been working with Environment Tasmania to complete track repairs to 100m of track from the car park to the foot bridge. Volunteers have been provided with training to learn about stone work, gravelling, and drainage. But it is not just about learning new track work skills. One volunteer summed up the last working bee by saying “track work is good for the soul”.
The next working bee on Sunday 22 Nov 2015 will also be the inaugural meeting of the new Wildcare group for this track. This Wildcare group will take on the long term maintenance of Higgs Track, as well as working with PWS to identify other walking track and weed management projects in the Western Tiers.
