First worked in this area in 1989

  • Paved with concrete pavers around picnic table.

  • Cleared an “L” shaped area near the shelter shed of lantana, tobacco bush, Chinese elm and exotic ginger and replanted and maintained the area. This area also needed the removal of household rubbish and an old fence. This area was revisited later to clear the boundary with the adjoining property of fishbone fern, privet, honeysuckle, ochna, spider lily, asparagus fern and Chinese elm.

  • Reformed the loop track and carted road base to some of the wet and eroded sections.

  • Erected posts with name plates to identify trees along the path.

  • Cut sleepers from an old fallen bollygum and built bridges over small creeks. Replaced these bridges at a later date with treated hardwood bridges.

  • Track maintenance and reformed the water bars for the entire loop track

  • Removed exotic ginger from either side of the entire loop track.

  • Cleared the Council Reserve behind the roofed sign at the park entrance of lantana, climbing asparagus, Chinese elm, privet and exotic ginger and replanted and maintained the reserve.

  • Cleared a narrow access strip between 32 and 34 Wongawallan Road of weed species and replanted the area.

  • Ongoing maintenance and weed control of the three revegetated plots.

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life. The Way of Natural History, edited by Thomas Lowe Fleischner and published by Trinity University Press (Texas)
