The war on willows continues
The Tyenna Willow Warriors, working with the Derwent Catchment Project and the Clarkes of Lanoma Estate, controlled willows along 300m of the Tyenna River on Saturday. This effort was focused on an area that had been revegetated with native plants in a previous working bee. These planting were watered, as although there was rain overnight on Friday, the soil was still very dry. These plantings are growing well in spite of numerous inundations over the winter months, with sturdy mesh cages allowing for water to move over the plants without damage.
At lunch time the group had a chance to learn more about the water bugs found in the Tyenna from John Gooderham and Trish Clements. Volunteers helped Trish and John sample the river and identify the water bugs collected. They are running a full Water Bug Blitz on the Lachlan River on Sunday 24 November.
