Clean Up Australia Day 2014
Despite a very hot day, another good crowd joined us early on Sunday 2 March for our 4th Clean Up Australia Day event. We cleaned away the litter and followed with a bushwalk for newcomers.
Our signs were finally installed in late June. They were funded from an environmental grant through the Department of Environment and Conservation (now DPaW) and with design and installation support through the City of Stirling. These signs highlight some key features of the vegetation of Inglewood Triangle
Welcome new members
We greatly appreciated the weeding efforts of new members Alison, Graham, Maria and Maddy.
Volunteer support from Conservation Volunteers Australia
The support from Conservation Volunteers Australia has been key to the progress we have made in taming the grassy weeds of Inglewood Triangle. They provided volunteers for three full days and one half day and helped us removed many bags of Veldt grass and Fumaria. Thank you Katie Haynes from CVA.
Perth College Kindy
We continued to work with the kindy class from Perth College, led by their enthusiastic teacher, Suzanne Bushby. They have adopted Inglewood Triangle and we really enjoyed their company. Thank you especially to Cath Cooper for leading our engagement.
Success in controlling Veldt grass
We made major inroads into the Veldt grass during 2014, through selective spraying by City of Stirling staff plus additional hand weeding through volunteers provided by Conservation Volunteers Australia. The sea of swaying heads of Veldt in Section B have gone!
The office bearers for the Group in 2014 were Cath Cooper (President), Christine Richardson (Treasurer), Christine Allbeury (Secretary) and Mary Gray (committee member). During the year we successfully acquitted our DPaW grant.
Christine Richardson was Friends of Inglewood Triangle's nominee on the committee of the Urban Bushland Council WA Inc.
