As noted previously, the Castlemaine Field Naturalists Club have been keeping a section of the Pyrenees Hwy roadside clear of rubbish for many years. This roadside contains some important woodland habitat, with many large hollow-bearing trees and a diverse range of understorey plants. The club is sending a call out to members and supporters to help with the next clean-up on Saturday 21 November 2015.
Meet from 9am at the corner of Willy Nilly Rd and Pyerenees Hwy (outside the Taits Decorative Iron workshop), which is about 5km out of central Castlemaine on the way towards Newstead. Gloves, garbage bags and red safety vests supplied. Wear sturdy footwear. It should take about an hour or so, or less time with more people.
