FOEP Edwards Point Wildlife Reserve St Leonards Weeding group activity 14 March
The Friends of Edward Point Reserve are eagerly looking forward to starting
our weeding activities for 2023 and would be delighted if you could join us. We
made great inroads focusing on the Western Sector in 2022 but there is a lot
more to do.

Fleabane grows, flowers and seeds over summer so it needs our urgent attention.
It’s also a great weed to start off with because it is easy to remove, even if
the soil is dry.
We're meeting at the Dune St entrance at 9.30am,
but if it is consistently raining or is too hot (30+%), then
we will cancel the weeding activity.
