A good week was had last week at Scottsdale with all vehicles in use, which is just as we like it.

Brett Pedan (Field Officer and photographer) was on site working with six volunteers (making up three teams of two for the week) out spraying new-growth briar on the valley floor.

Another six volunteers were dong Waterwatch (water quality surveys) and Kyle was doing track slashing.

Sue, of course, was in the nursery. At home typing away, were Joss and Trish writing up the new visitors' pack for Scottsdale. 

This week will see soil consultant Peter come out again, helping to design our next erosion control works and volunteer Brett measuring grass in preparation for a legless lizard relocation. Plus, of course, Sue in the nursery, this time with with Bob and Yvonne helping with the weeding.

Next week sees our usual quarterly rabbit control week with hopefully four helpers a day, which is into its fith year now.

Plus of course ... Sue in the nursery :-)

Thank you everyone, we would do so much less without you!
