Friends of Cleland Conservation Park Tree Day Site Details

Friends of Cleland Conservation Park

Our aims for National Tree Day are to continue the good work already undertaken over the past 3-4 years to regenerate areas adjoining the Steub Trail and surrounding Mt Lofty Summit within the Cleland National Park. We will have around 150 seedlings to plant and also continue weeding in particular around the plants we have planted over the past 3-4 years (halo weeding) and other weeds in the area that threaten to overwhelm the native plants. We also aim to provide an opportunity for people who enjoy using the Steub Trail and Mt Lofty Summit to contribute a few hours towards maintaining and assisting in regenerating this area.
